He received, among others lessons from Professor Wolfgang Brendel, Professor Helmut Deutsch and Professor Hanns-Martin Schneidt and performed as a soloist until his completion of his studies in summer 2002 in numerous stage productions of the Bayrischen Theaterakademie.

After three years of engagement at the Stadttheater Bremerhaven, he was ewngaged since 2006 for another two years at the Landestheater Coburg and since 2008 he works as freelance.
