Gregor was born in Zurich, Switzerland. After boarding school in Estavayer-le-lac (French part of Switzerland) he attended four years at the prestigious art school of Zurich combined with an apprenticeship in jewelry design and manufacturing. Studying under Otto Schubiger at the renowned Fine Jewelry establishment of Baltensperger, Zurich. At the mere age of 20 he would go on to design an elaborate necklace that would earn him recognition as a promising designer.
At 24, Gregor immigrated to the United States where he planned to study English. He worked for two years at Mayor’s Jewelers, in Miami Florida. Shortly thereafter he began work on his own, actively designing and manufacturing jewelry over the next few years.
His artistic endeavors would soon require the use of computers and in 1993 he went on to earn a diploma in Software Engineering using the C/++ language. The advent of increasingly skill intensive computer technology allowed Gregor to carve out his own niche. He embarked on what proved to be challenging, new adventures that would require the development and design of advanced software for in-flight airline services. His artistic abilities gave him the extra edge needed to implement revolutionary Graphical User Interfaces.
Seeking to fuse this technology with his love of the arts he would go on to employ advance (Auto) CAD software and design a groundbreaking jewelry locking device that earned him a patent. In addition, he was also involved in several industrial design projects.
In 1999 Gregor founded Oxsys corp. A company that developes internet software and websites.
Gregor’s true love and passion is art and design. Today he is in the process of designing new, never seen before, creations that will truly strike your fancy. He feels that every object needs a purpose, a story if you will. Look carefully at his creations and you will find a hidden message.
Quite frequently he is referred to as the “Renaissance Man” for his ability to be a master in many arts.
