I was born in Germany and currently live in  Wildeshausen, Lower Saxony, Germany

After concluding my geophysics studies at Clausthal University I worked as exploration/production geophysicist and as manager for the oil and gas industry. Based in Germany I also worked on several international assignments (Argentina, Norway, Indonesia, Libya). I'm a photographer with a passion for blackwhite photography, nature photography and abstract photography.

My focus lies in the careful selection of the subject and the composition of the photographic image rather than in an intensive post-shot edit, which I try to keep at a minimum.
