I was born in 1968 in GroƟ St. Florian, Austria. My musical career started in 1982 when I first started trumpet lessons at the Johann-Joseph-Fux Konservatorium in Graz. As of 1984 I studied trumpet performance at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. I completed further studies in conducting and composing with Franz Cibulka at the Johann-Joseph-Fux Konservatorium in Graz, at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna and at the Claudio-Monteverdi music conservatory in Bozen with Thomas Doss. Furthermore I attended workshops of Jan Van der Roost, Jan Cober and Douglas Bostock. In 2010, my composition Variations on an Austrian Folk Song received an award at the Austrian composition competition.

My first pieces of music were published by OrchestralArt in 2008. Since 2011 I have collaborated with Mitropa (Hal Leonard MGB), who publishes and records my compositions.

In 2017, I have founded my own publishing company gomusic, where I independently publish compositions for youth and wind orchestra.
