From my experience it requires continuous studies and thorough observations as well as an open mind for new ideas and influences to fuel one's creative engine and add powerful upgrades to one's toolbox.
After enjoying a comprehensive music education including piano, singing and guitar during school days, I then studied musicology and business at the Free University of Berlin, Germany for seven years. I studied the scores of composers like Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin but also contemporaries' works like those Howard Shaw, Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt and developed a deep passion for music production in various genres.
After university my professional career first lead me to China, where I lived and worked for 3 years. Nowadays I am back in Germany producing content for different music, media and marketing projects across industries and communication channels.
