Born 1959 in Westphalia. After studying to be a teacher, he first appeared in the cultural underground as a composer and actor in the political cabaret “FORTSCHROTT”, fields of work were the street, the demonstration, the cultural festival, Brokdorf, Startbahn West – you can read about it in the history books.
Then composer and actor in the legendary Berlin underground musical troupe “COLLEGE OF HEARTS”. With our performances we were style-setting for the development of a “New German Musical”, cheeky, fast, cabaret-like and mobile (biggest successes: KING KURT and BLUTIGER HONIG).
Parallel to this, work at the public theaters: Deutsches Theater, Berliner Ensemble, Maxim-Gorki-Theater, Komödie am Kudamm in Berlin and numerous theaters in the German-speaking area.center of activity then became the NEUKÖLLNER OPER in Berlin. Together with the author and director Peter Lund, a series of very successful musicals were created, which are less indebted to the American musical and more to the European musical comedy or operetta.
