Born in Munich, Germany in 1965. Woodturner/Designer of bowls and vessels.
After graduating from high school, he was originally trained as cabinet maker and stumbled on woodturning by chance. Starting out an autodidact with no previous knowledge of the art, equipped with a book of woodturning , he was unhampered by convention in his approach to turnery. After a few years, by means of patient autodidactic exercises and research, he has perfected this technique and he already established his first atelier in 1990. And after about three years, he entered the design school, Fachhochschule Hildesheim (Germany), and got the title "Meister". He exhibits his work extensively throughout Europe, and internationally. His objects have earned him numerous prizes as well as prestigious museum honours, and form part of many private collections all over the world.
