He is an avid collector of professions and cities, totaling eight different careers in ten cities in Europe and the U.S. He was born in Germany near the border of Alsace - Lorraine, France. Gerold was an almost autistic child, always sitting in the back of the class or lurking in the last row of movie theaters, spending endless hours watching films from around the world.<br /> As an adult, he planned to become a bank manager to follow in his father&#39;s footsteps, but instead used all his savings to buy a VW Bus to travel and see the world he knew only from films.<br /> In former West-Berlin, he worked as a security chauffeur for the German Government. He became involved with &quot;Die Neuen Wilden&quot; (a new expressionistic painting movement) in the early 1980s and began to paint and sell his work. He later moved to Munich to work with children afflicted with Downs Syndrome; lived in Hamburg where he volunteered in a hospital, worked in Detroit with abused teenager, trained as a commercial pilot in Dallas, Denver and San Francisco; was certified as a British hot-air-balloon pilot; coached professional tennis, trained as an EMT in preparation for a firefighting career, which was interrupted by his success as a hand model. Gerold Wunstel worked as a trained butler, private Chauffeur, worked as a Realtor for several years; ran marathons; opened a nightclub in Bavaria, where he learned to chain smoke, and now resides in Los Angeles, where he works as a film actor, hand model, screenwriter and hit man.<br /> In addition to his native German, he speaks French and masters the Finnish sign language.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div>

Film synopsis: 
<p><span>Dr. Ruprecht Rummel recently retired from a career as an Urologist. Spending most of his time at home now and looking forward</span><span class="text_exposed_show">&nbsp;to peace and quality time in his adopted home of Los Angeles, he gets terribly annoyed by the illegal use of leaf blowers. Despite having a Leaf Blower Hotline, the Department of Public Works does not enforce the law and regulations to battle these illegal dust blowers. Ruprecht, a proud L.A. resident, is determined to find some peace and takes the law in his own hands. In a much needed romantic twist, even a maverick like Ruprecht gets what he deserves.</span></p>
