About me

I was born on June 4th, 2004 in Vienna as the second of three children. I started taking piano lessons at the age of six, followed by two years of violin lessons. Over time, I discovered my passion for composing and in 2016 I began studying composition with Hans G. Kitzbichler at the Johann Sebastian Bach Music School – and the passion is here to stay. I have been studying composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (mdw) since October 2022.
