*1985 Berlin, Germany

I love my speciality and am always looking for enthusiastic people who are eager to learn and acquire knowledge about this kind of craftsmanship and the enthusiasm it can convey. In creative professions experience is particularly useful and especially in work groups a dynamic may occur that helps each student to feel inspired. That's why I like to share my skills with the confidence that a craft with a long tradition and immense accumulated knowledge will not be forgotten.
