Meet Your Sleep Experts at Samina Sleep




Born in Germany, Claus trained as a master carpenter and, in 1998, immigrated to North America. From furniture design and manufacturing, wholesale and retail, he has worked for decades as an entrepreneur. Now, his company focuses on the one item most overlooked yet with the greatest impact on life – your bed. He credits his own good health largely to holistic sleep with SAMINA and has become a holistic sleep evangelist. Having raised two adult children, he now devotes his paternal skills to raising Sol, his beloved black Labrador.



Marketing Director

Denise supports Claus as his partner in life and business on a mission to introduce healthy sleep to the sleep deprived. Having had a former career in human resources, she now employs her skills to promoting the benefits of a good night’s sleep. Having raised one adult daughter, she now devotes herself to mothering Claus and their sweet dog, Sol. From personal experience, she also knows the positive changes prioritizing sleep in SAMINA has made on her own wellbeing. Which is why their beloved Sol has her own doggie bed.
