Before his professional ventures, he was classically trained at the piano from a young age on. In his juvenile years he became extremely interested in Film-, Videogame- and Classical Music, and began extensively studying scores and their magic behind. In the age of 22 he enrolled for a Bachelor‘s degree in classical music at the University of Music, Freiburg, where he studied under Prof. Eckehard Kiem (a former student of the Avantgarde composer Prof. Brian Ferneyhough), Prof. Hans Aerts, and many other music professors and luminals. Further, he received praises and positive critiques for his original music works, arrangements and orchestrations – by such industry legends as Bruce Broughton, Jeff Fayman, Brad Marrapodi and many others, as can be checked out below.
