Short profile

At the beginning of 2021, despite the pandemic, I founded the coffee roasting company Café Aroma - Lisbon Coffee Roasters.

Since October 2019 I have been living in Lisbon, where I continue my activities as a photographer, writer and photography trainer. My focus is on travel photography and photo documentaries.

After my training as a bookseller at Herder in 1986 in Stuttgart, I worked for several years in the Herder bookstore in Rome. From 1991 to 2008 I worked as a Sales Manager and Sales Director at the German publishing houses, Klett and Kohlhammer. After enjoying the experience of several photography workshops, I attended the Free School of Photography Stuttgart in 2003-2004, which led me to start working on my own photography projects.

In 2009, I moved to São Paulo, which marked the beginning of my work as a photographer and writer. In 2013 I moved to Mumbai, India.

In addition, another great passion of mine is coffee. For years, I have involved myself to learn all about the theory and practice of coffee: production, classification, cupping, sensorics, barista (SCAE), roasting.
