New York City

I have been taking photographs ever since I was a child. My great-grandfather and great-grandmother owned a photo-studio in Prague, my grandmother and my grandfather met in a photo-store they both worked at in 1940s Vienna, my great-aunt dedicated her life to her Hasselblad and has traveled the world until late into her 70s. Another great-aunt was a film-editor, and my father never spent a moment of his leisure time without a camera strapped around his neck. In other words, photography is in my blood.

In 1996 I moved from Austria to New York City to study Photography. I graduated in 2000 having completed a double-major in Photography and Multimedia/Advertising Design. I have been working as an Art Director, Web Manager/Designer, and Freelance Photographer ever since. I have exhibited my photography on several occasions and have been lucky to have been featured online and in print various times.
