Biography
I grew up in Linz, Upper Austria. After graduating highschool in 2005 I went to Barcelona to attend an educational program for illustration, comic and design at Escola Joso. I spent almost five years in Barcelona where I gained a profound knowledge of drawing and professional storytelling and illustration.
In 2011 after four years of drawing, chewing up pencils and learning a great deal from many talented artists working mainly in the European and American industry for comic, graphic novels, video games and professional illustration I returned to Austria.
In Graz I gained experience as a graphic designer at I-Punkt Werbeagentur. In 2013 started working as a freelance artist in the field of graphic design, illustration,  and commercial art.

I also work part time at fum Film und Medien Akademie - a cultural association - where I'm in charge of graphic design, marketing and teaching photography for teenagers.
