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.

I moved from Austria to New York City to study Photography when I was 21 years old. I graduated with honors, having completed a double-major in Photography and Multimedia/Advertising Design. For many years, I worked in the field of art direction, design, web- and project management, keeping photography on the side lines working only on occasional weekends or nights. In 2013, I turned away from all distractions and focused on my photography business full-time. Best decision ever! Doing what you love is incredibly fulfilling. I have exhibited my work on several occasions and have been lucky to have been featured online and in print various times.
