ABOUT ME

In 2012 I concluded my post-graduate studies at the University for music and dramatic arts Graz (Austria). I received a Masters Degree in Performance with a focus on Saxophone. Not long after, I joined the first cruise ship as an orchestra musician (P&O UK, Cunard). In 2014 was promoted to music director and stayed in that position till the end of 2016 (Cunard, Regent Seven Seas, NCL). I joined Princess Cruises as a house band musician and soon after received a promotion to a fleet arranger. Through all this time, I've been actively performing with various excellent musicians worldwide. I've also been composing and arranging music for numerous international artists.
