About me

My history

My story

Photography, to me, is capturing moments the way I see them. There are hundreds of ways of capturing an object, a moment, and a person. It all lies in the eye of the photographer. Taking a picture does not start with a camera, it starts in your eye.

I left Austria in 1993 at the age of 16. I was so curious to get out into the world. Nothing could have held me back, and so, off I went. Since then I have lived and worked in Denmark, Los Angeles, Germany, Italy, London, Salamanca Spain, Canary Islands, Costa Rica, Honduras, and finally Mexico.

I am not apt to be an employee. My own ideas of how things are, or should be, are too strong. So, I always tried to be a freelancer in everything I did. I spent years working as a bartender before I started working as a full time photographer in 2009 while living in Costa Rica.

A few years ago, a childhood friend from Austria reminded me of something I said to him when we were about 10 years old. “When I grow up, I will travel around the world, and live in the jungle.” That’s kind of what I did.
