Since March 2013 I have been living in Mumbai, India, where I work as a freelance photographer, journalist and photography trainer. My focus is on travel photography and photo documentaries. I started enjoying travelling at an early age, while my passion for photography came later.

After my training as a bookseller at the publishing house, Herder in 1986 in Stuttgart, I worked for several years in the Herder bookstore in Rome. Later, I spent a year on a shrimp farm, Aqua-Tech, in Ecuador. From 1991 to 2008 I worked as a Sales Director at the German publishing houses, Klett and Kohlhammer. After enjoying the experience of several photography workshops and excursions, I attended the photography course "Learn to See" under Volker Schöbel at the Free School of Photography Stuttgart in 2003-2004, which led me to start working on my first own photography projects. In 2009, I moved to São Paulo, Brazil, which marked the beginning of my work as a photographer and journalist.

In addition, another great passion of mine is coffee. For years, I have involved myself to learn more about the theory and practice of coffee. I have even written a book about Brazilian coffee (on cultivation, processing and history) and in São Paulo I did a course titled, "Classification and Tasting of Coffee". Recently, in Rome, I completed a Barista course (SCAE). See further information below the coffee book.
