was born in Germany in 1951 and had already established a love for the subject of James Bond some twenty years later, around the time his future co-writer was born. In this pre-video era Dirk often drove his relatives crazy with his desperate attempts to watch every Bond film broadcast on TV. The many travels together with his wife brought them to the most exotic destinations, initiating his passion for Bond locations.

Sadly and totally unexpectedly, Dirk's life ended on March 16, 2004 at the age of 52, leaving behind his wife and two daughters.
