Born in Homburg-Saar, Germany. Diploma in architecture and product design 1981 at the Fachhochschule Kaiserslautern.

In 1982 I started as a professional photographer for different Austrian newspapers and magazines. During the 15 years to come I had the chance to portray numerous authors, artists and poets. Besides I focused on creating my own landscapes and objects, my darkroom became my preferred tool to experiment with shadow and light.

In 1997 I started playing around with Photoshop and 3D programs and soon became aware of the possibilities to create effects that could not be achieved by means of photography and darkroom technology. Since that time I was captured by the passion for computers and the means they are offering if you combine various programs to find new results and new styles.

Working with the computer is a never ending creative process for me, that offers the greatest possible freedom imaginable in expressing dreams, nightmares and visions
