Michel Daniek

Michel Daniek was born in 1964 in Germany. He grew up as the only son of a plumber, and from an early age enjoyed playing in his father’s workshop. Later he became an industrial mechanic in the motor industry but soon started wondering if there could be alternative ways of living. He then worked as a bicycle mechanic for handicapped people for some years, but on reaching 30 he found himself totally dissatisfied with the German way of life. He bought himself a truck and left in search of other ways to live. During his travels Michel experimented with a small solar system in his truck and ever since has used solar energy in his day to day life. In 1997 he finally settled in a new home in an alternative village in the sunny south of Spain. He is now married and has two daughters, and works in many different ecologic and sustainable projects all around Orgiva.
