Born in 1993, the composer, pianist and double bass player already very early started with his musical education. In his home town of Wiener Neustadt he already had piano lessons at the age of three years and composed his first pieces at a computer in elementary school age. He studied piano IGP/classic piano (Prof. Natatsa Veljkovic) at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and composition (Prof. Christian Minkowitsch) at the Private Conservatory Vienna.

 

From jazz to classical composition to avant-garde, his compositions are stylistically and sonically limitless.

 

After numerous participations in competitions (e.g. "prima la musica" - 4x 1st prize Country of Lower Austria, "ZEITklang - New Musi", "Vienna Film Music Award 2011/2012" - each time 2nd Prize) and workshops, his musical interests lie very much in film music. Among others, he worked with the Jugendsinfonieorchester NÖ and with the Tonkünstlerorchester (during the workshop "Ink Still Wet 2013"). Currently he composes internationally for orchestra and various ensembles, such as the St. Peters & St. Mary's College Orchestra (Auckland/NZ) or the Sonus Saxophone Quartet (Vienna).
