I was born on the 15th of January 1950 in Lienz, Eastern Tyrol.
I went to elementary school, then to grammar school, took my A-levels and studied to be a teacher in a secondary modern school in my home town.
My subjects were English, Italian, geography and art.
(I taught in Lienz from 1972 until I retired in 2012)
I spent half a year in England (Sussex), three months in France and two years in the United States.
At the university of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls I studied English, French, German literature and completed my studies with a Master of Arts diploma.
During the last four years I have been writing poems and short stories (poetic as well as humorous ones) in German, English, Italian and French.
So far I had 22 successful readings in public in Eastern Tyrol, North Tyrol, South Tyrol, Carinthia and Vienna.
I published a booklet of poems and a booklet with short stories together with the art photographer Herbert Nussbaumer, who lives and works in Vienna.
