Like the fate of so many other children, my musical life started with singing at home and with the ubiquitous recorder. Later I began directing my energies towards developing my skills on the piano and as a singer in various school choirs. I gained experience as a soloist and section leader for orchestras in the Harmonica Club Mössingen. At the same time, I was active as a singer and keyboardist in various bands. And at some point I had no other choice other than to pursue a college degree in music. I paid my way through college by directing choirs and giving voice lessons. I got my jazz cred in my many years as a member of the vocal ensemble „nice noise“. And out of all that developed the career path that I now call my own.
