I have been working as a composer and a singer since my childhood.
I always thought of this double activity (even if it was often interpreted as indecisiveness) as a potential gift of wealth in which both professions can enrich and fertilize one another.
After having been given the opportunity to do important composition work already in my early 20s (large commission works for Musikverein and Konzerthaus Vienna and others, productions for the radio and on CD), I changed focus, starting a relatively intense activity as a concert and opera singer (Musikverein and Konzerthaus Vienna, the opera houses of Frankfurt and Magdeburg, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Antikenfestspiele Trier, the Chigiana Festival in Siena, and some other leading European venues).
In both fields I have won international prizes and grants, and I expanded my spectrum even further by occupying myself as a teacher, coach, cabaret artist, translator of poetry, and chansonnier.
Additionally, I had the privilege to get to know the exciting continent of Artistic Research on a journey through theory and practice, through artistic production and reproduction. Only quite recently I completed an artistic doctorate at the University of the Arts in Graz/Austria.
Another important activity is my work as a vocal teacher and coach which I have been performing quite happily for many years. In 2015 I was appointed as a University Professor by the University Mozarteum in Salzburg.
