Initially I pursued a career as a violinist studying with Matthias Bock in Nuremberg and Ann-Marie Calhoun in the US. I then moved on to study jazz and fusion guitar with Rue Protzer, Nico Schliemann (Glasperlenenspiel), Martin Miller and Rick Vandivier.

In 2014 I supported Norisha Campbell (The Voice of Germany 2013) for shows and recordings.
