I was born in 1958.  My professional career started with an apprenticeship as carpenter. Later on I was trained as an architectural draftsman and visited the Zurich University of the Arts. Since 1998 I’m using my personal skills as an independently working designer and furniture manufacturer. Since 2015 I’ve got an own showroom in the heart of Zurich’s old city. Over the years I held several small exhibitions, presenting my furniture and artworks or joined larger national exhibitions, most of the time in collaboration with form forum. Today my professional focus lies on own creations for furniture and artworks of wood, while I still search for solutions for the individual desires and requirements of my customers, maintaining an intensive dialog with them. From my material wood, I’ve especially learned to let things mature. The work I’m actually presenting emphasizes on the interaction of a wooden sculpture – usable as a shelf – with light and shadow.
