While still at high school, he began to take professional singing lessons from Prof. Gerhild Romberger at the Detmold University for Music. After graduating from high school, he continued his vocal training with bachelor's degree.
Lied singing quickly turned out to be an important form of musical expression for him, so that after completing his bachelor's degree, he studied Lied with Prof. Manuel Lange in the master's degree.

Regardless of his solo concert activities, especially in the areas of Lied and Oratorio, ensemble singing is still an important part of his young career. He regularly takes part in various professional vocal ensembles such as the Amsterdam Baroque Choir, the Vokalakademie Berlin and the Seicento Vocale. Under the direction of well-known conductors such as Ton Koopman, René Jacobs, Jérémie Rhorer and Frank Markowitsch, he took part in national and international concert tours as well as CD and radio productions.
Opera engagements took him to the Landestheater Detmold and the Städtische Bühnen Bielefeld during his studies. In spring 2018 he made his debut at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe in Charles Gounod's "Roméo et Juliette" and has been singing the role of Killian in Carl Maria von Weber's "Freischütz" since the 2018/2019 season.
