2000: Diploma in art history, in Graz in Styria, Austria. The theme of my diploma thesis was Carlo Scarpa and the beginnings of modern museum adaptions.

1999 to 2002 I worked in EU-R&D projects for the digitization of cultural heritage. This great experience was followed by three very valuable years at renowned

Galerie Eugen Lendl (www.eugenlendl.com, Austrian and international contemporary art).

2006 – 2008:  studies for Dr. phil. (PhD) in art history. Besides the theme of my thesis – "The aura of art history. The influence of art history on other scientific subjects" – I focused on courses in classical modern and contemporary art.

2009 to 2013 I worked for the international start-up TMT The Mobile Terminal® at the company's Headquarter in Villach. During this time I made five long journeys – each time for several months – to India and Bangkok, where I did various projects.

2013 to 2015 I completed and published "Roter Staub", a book based on my journeys.
Since May 2016 I am living in Vienna. After a short working-experience in Vienna's first district, famous for it's (multifaceted) galleries, I prefered to become self-employed.
In June 2017 I started to work also for RECENART - Research Centre for Art, providing the latest technological and art historical methods for the examination of authenticity and provenance of your art work.
