"I'm originally from Vienna, Austria; born in "the year that rocked the world"...or at least some people claim that.  In any case, I had to leave the motherland as a teenager to finish high-school in the US and ended up staying.  My formal education was in architecture, but when I realized that the profession was not what I had expected, I made the switch to photography. Most of my days are spent shooting greasy bikers and their motorcycles for various publications, but every once in a while I get the call to shoot some fashion stuff...I guess that's why I'm here writing this."

«Je suis originaire de Vienne en Autriche, né l’année du rock’n roll ou tout du moins c’est ce que prétendent certaines personnes. Dans tous les cas j’ai quitté mon pays natal quand j’étais encore adolescent pour finir ma scolarité aux USA et y suis resté. Ma première formation a été dans l’architecture mais j’ai vite réalisé que cette profession n’était pas celle que j’espérais, et je me suis tourné vers la photographie. Je passe la plupart de mes journées à photographier des motards crasseux, pour diverses publications. Pour la première fois depuis longtemps, j’ai reçu un appel pour shooter des choses plus fashion… J’imagine que c’est pour ça que je suis entrain d’écrire cela»
