Born in 1979 in Thuringia/Germany
 I studied the violin with Ilan Gronich (Berlin), Grigory Zhislin (London) and Keiko Wataya (Amsterdam).  

I particularly enjoy playing chamber music. In 2006, we founded the string quartet,      
the Sonar Quartett, which specialises in playing contemporary music.

I have been working together with artists and performers like Alwynne Pritchard, Marcello Lussana, Elena Kakaliagou, Matthias Bauer, Sabine Akiko Ahrendt and Cathy van Eck.
The Kranichstein Performer's Prize was given to me in 2002.

In my view, there is no contradiction between embracing the historical performance practice of the Baroque and Classical periods, exploring free improvisation, participating in multi media projects and performing contemporary music. 
For me personally this is a great enrichment and inspiration.
So I love to play with 
chamber orchestras,
while at the same time giving many world premieres of solo and chamber music, or joining Ensembles such as MusikfabrikNRW and Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin as a guest musician.

.... and so I am going on in search of new impulses and expressions....
