About me

Home  /  About me


Originally born and raised in Germany, left in the end of the 80’s to work in the travel industry in Lanzarote, Tenerife and Madeira.
Opportunity called and I moved to Austria and later to Switzerland.

My Dominican adventure started 2001, just wanted to take a break form the busy life style in Europe and visited Punta Cana.
Fell in love with the beautiful island and its friendly inhabitans and got infected with the
“Dominican Virus”.
Lucky me got a great job offer in the fast growing vacation market and decided to accept the new challenge.

My idea to open Tropical Treasure was born 2005 when tourists were telling me about their shopping experiences at the local markets and with the beach vendors.

In May 2006 Tropical Treasure opened the doors in the “Plaza” of Uvero Alto.
The plan was successful and many tourists were enjoying the different shopping experience.
Pressure free shopping with a polite and charming stuff. Great diversity of beautiful and affordable Dominican products and souvenirs.

In 2011 a bigger location was needed and again the luck was on my side and I found my unique little paradise on the beach.
In the last years adding the beach spa and later on opened the “Sandy Feet Beach Bar”.

Still enjoying every single day in paradise…the story will go on
