Has got a MBA from the University of Passau.
Since the beginning of his career, he has been active in cultural, and more precisely, musical institutions.
He started as Personal Assistant to Robert Wilson and later to Gérard Mortier, Artistic Director of the Salzburg Festival.
From 2001, he worked as Artistic Administrator first at Konzerthaus Dortmund, then at Camerata in Salzburg, in the same position.
In both cases, he was responsible for planning and programming, contracting of soloists, conductors and orchestra members, budget supervision, public and private funding, sponsoring, marketing and public relations.
Later, he was appointed General Manager for “Pèlerinages”, Kunstfest Weimar and as such, responsible for the planning and programming of concerts plus the overall management of the international interdisciplinary festival.
Since January 2013, he is Director of Bozar Music (Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels) where he is in charge of the concert planning and programming, for more than 250 events per season, covering a wide range of repertoire from medieval to contemporary music. Bozar being an interdisciplinary institution, the programming is meant to keep a link between the music and the other artistic disciplines.
