About Me

Since 2003 I have been occupied with the construction of guitars and acustic plucked instruments.

After three years of instruction at Mittenwald luthier school in Germany I worked for the master luthier Lorenzo Frignani in Modena (Italy) from 2006 to 2009.

There I gained in experience in the construction of new guitars and in the restoration and conservation of old plucked instruments and I acquired many interesting and helpful working methods.

From then on I got more and more interested in the preservation of antique guitars.

To learn more about new techniques and procedures of restoration I visited Mr. Bernd Kresse's workshop in Cologne (Germany) for half a year. Bernd Kresse, luthier and restorer, generously shared his vast knowledge with me.

Since 2010 I've started up my own business. While working together with Mr Frignani in Modena I run a small workshop at Coburg (Germany).

In 2013, I decided to move back to Germany. At Cologne in the charming district of Nippes I united both shops, continuing the collaboration with Mr Kresse until the summer of 2015.

Afterwards I moved to the town of Schweinfurt in Lower Franconia where I focus on building classical concert guitars and restoring antique and modern plucked instruments.
