I learned how to cook from my mother and from star chef Alfons Schuhbeck .

I worked at Tantris in Munich and looked over the shoulder of Hans Haas .

In the residence with Heinz Winkler I was able to experience 3-star gastronomy in the kitchen.

As a show chef and cooking trainer, I have conducted cooking courses with +12,000 customers in Germany and Austria.

To date, several million website visitors have let themselves be spoiled by my extensive menu.

Recipes created by me and food pictures from my studio have been published in national and international press articles and on customer websites over the last 20 years.

I take photos with cameras from Apple (iPhone), Canon, Fujifilm (GFX 50S II and X-T4) and Leica (SL2-S)
