I was born in Tyrol in 1989. After graduating from the Technical High School in Innsbruck, I worked as a radio engineer for a couple of years. In 2009 I tackled my ambition as music photographer in the local venues of western Austria. In 2013 I moved to Vienna to study Communication Sciences and continue my work as a freelance photojournalist.
Long before I picked up the camera I was honing my skills on the guitar’s fretboard. With the band we formed in High School we did some RATM and QOTSA covers. Unfortunately my musician career never took off, mainly because I switched into another artistic genre. Also I love any board sport. Surfing my first waves in 2015 completely blew my mind. Photojournalism has always fascinated me, simply because images are quite good storytellers. Latest in my media studies I caught fire for the urgent topics of this age.
