In 1991 he joined the School of Radio Technology Nuernberg and was trained as an audio technician, and afterwards he has been employed at Radio Bremen. A scholarship for upgrading to the audio engineer´s profession in Dublin, Ireland, was initiated by himself in 1995.

He effected CD recordings with bands including Engine Alley, Rollerskate Skinny, Razorlove , and with songwriters, aside from doing sound mastering (Fleadh Cowboys, Ronnie Taheny) and producetion master (Tanglewood, Ian Campbell, Ernie Whalley).
