About Me

I'm a photographer living in the heart of Luxembourg, loving traveling, hiking, tech stuff, vegan cuisine and everything that inspires me. Also, I'm the host of thephotonauts.com.

It should be everyone's goal to make oneself seen, to tell people, what one has to say. But how? Trying to find out the right way to express your thoughts, the one way only you can do it, should be on top of your to-do-list.

It took quite some time for me to come up with the idea that photography could actually be more than just a hobby. School finished, diploma in hand, what now? What can I do? Photography? Professionally? 

Two years of being stuck at a desk at the luxembourgish court of justice and a hammering voice in the back of my head did finally suffice for me to do what I always wanted to: become a professional photographer.

Speak for yourself instead of reciting, rather show something yourself than admiring to much what others do. That is my motivation.
