"Music can change the world, because it can change people."
Music is emotion. That is what i learned early on at the age of 5. The music i listened to always touched me emotionally and sure changed the way i evolved and grew up. At a young age music was like a parent, idol and mentor for me. I started playing the guitar when i was 14 years old and played in several Melodic Death Metal and Indie Rock Bands. At this time i started to compose my own music, because i wanted to influence others with my music, like music influenced me. Later on i discovered the scores from Howard Shore, Clint Mansell, John Powell, Max Richter and Jason Hayes. Impressed with this kind of music i started to compose my first orchestral music at the age of 20. At the same time i started to study Musicology at the University of Arts in Graz (Styria, Austria) and began to play the piano.
Currently i am studying Audio-Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg, composing for 3D-Artists and Filmmakers. I like any kind of genre and try to learn as much as i can from the different genres. Since 2012 i am focusing on composing for film and games. My Music is mainly influenced by composers like Jason Hayes, Howard Shore, Wim Mertens, Max Richter and Yann Tiersen.
