I was born in Bludenz, Vorarlberg, Austria. At the age of 4 I started my musical education with playing piano. 4 years later I began to play the guitar, instructing myself.
At the age of 18, after my school degrees I moved to Vienna to study classcial guitar at the "Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Wien". 2012/2013 I graduated from University (classcial guitar performing arts and classical guitar pedagogic with certification to teach piano) with highest degrees.
At the age of 11 I wrote my first song with english lyrics. Beside studying and practising the classical guitar repertoire it has always been a big pleasure for me to write new melodies and compose pieces for guitar.
