In 2013 he did his diploma degree in visual communication in the illustration class by Henning Wagenbreth at the University of the Arts, Berlin (UdK) and studied additional for one year illustration at the University of the West of England in Bristol. 

As a student he was cofounder of the creative-collective »Freie Radikale« in 2010, which was a loose union of interdisciplinary working designers.
