why deutschland loves david hasselhoff


Growing up in Europe, I was fortunate enough to see The Hoff’s career take off as an actor, singer and just all around role model in my home country of Germany. This talk discusses some of his most important career achievements and painfully points out what America missed out on.

Born in Germany, I came to the US 16 years later and went to college in Montana. Got to live in places like England, France, Spain, Montana, Seattle, LA, and now Portland. After failing as a ping-pong player and comedian, I ended up in advertising. Gave my first college graduation speech last year. Didn’t think so many graduates would invite their grandparents, which resulted in some rather awkward moments. Write the mario blog about life in Portland, my cat Otto and to prevent daily calls from my German mama.
