After finishing Abitur in English and geography at the Gymnasium Horn in Bremen/Germany in 1984, Mr. Heilbronn went on to study cultural science at the University of Bremen. In 1989, he moved to New York to pursue a career in the music industry and continued his studies in sound engineering, editing and programming.
In 2012, he acquired a United States Soccer Federation coaching license.
As a member of the Physical Education faculty at BASIS Independent Brooklyn, Mr. Heilbronn's goal is "to make physical activity fun and accessible for all of our children. I want our students to know how easy it can be, to live healthy every day and understand what impact it will have on their bodies growing up. Students learn about sportsmanship, respect, rules, and discipline and get to feel proud about their own accomplishments every day."
He loves to play and coach soccer. Food is another passion of his. "I also like to travel, meet new people and experience different cultures and foods," he says.
