In 1995, as a young man I travelled to Oxford in England where I completed a course in furniture making and design.
Luck, and also my own desire to take such work further, lead me to the workshop of my then future Master Petter Southall.
There, on the beautiful south west coast of England I learnt furniture making as an apprentice for five years.
In the following years as an apprentice, I collected as much experience as I could in many workshops in England and America.
As a successful conclusion to this time, I studied for a year at the James Krenov School of Furniture making in California.
For the last 10 years I have been living in my home town of Graz, Austria with my wife and two children.
Here I took the exam to be a Master Cabinet Maker in 2006.
