I got interested in photography as an exchange student in Australia in 1989. Learning more about it at the École d'Arts Appliquées in Vevey and joining the cooperative agency Lookat Photos in Zürich made it a profession. In New York (1997 - 2004) I had the pleasure of producing feature stories for magazines, frequently collaborating with writer Peter Hossli. Crossing the US with photographer Stephan Vanfleteren, both dressed as Elvis resulted in a book and a Word Press Photo award. In Istanbul (2005-2007) I collaborated with Gunnar Köhne on reportages in Turkey. Since 2007 I'm based in Zürich, occasionally working for corporate clients.
It's been a privilege to be a photographer before and during the raise of the internet, social media, and smartphones. To explore opportunities in tech I founded Pappy GmbH in 2011 with Matthias Saner, developing apps for language development (2011-2016) and to simplify smartphones (2017-present). Currently I'm coordinating a Horizon2020 project and work with partners in India with our new company Bellurbis.
