Started in 1991 as self-taught live sound engineer and worked for Bands and Rental Companies. I've worked in all positions of live application for more than 15 years.

1997 passed my audio engineer study and started as teacher and supervisor in School of audio engineering in Zürich where I got in touch with DPA microphones. Finished career as school director 2003 to get back in live applications and second business as product management for brands like AVID, RME and Native Instruments and Apogee, where I got my practical knowledge for digital audio and established lot of great working relationships with manufacturers, brands and distributors around the world.

Since 25 years my passion is to make sound as FOH engineer for many bands and musicians from Jazz&Swing to Heavy Metal Bands. I love the contrast on this different styes because it needs music expriences not only techique knowledge.
Beside my FOH jobs and product management I do some seminars in microphone, digital audio and live applications to give the practical knowledge to younger engineers and all other interested people. Since 2016 with my own company Digitalrock.

My credo: The microphone as first part in audio chain makes the sound. The rest are tools to fix it or not.
