I was born in May 1976 and raised in the picturesque town of Jona on the shores of lake Zurich, Switzerland. Untroubled childhood years were spent playing around with my sandbox friends or going swimming at the local lido.
I would love to boast that I started experimenting with my tape recorder or composing chamber music on my gran's spinet at a young age, but I actually had no such interests at all.
After finishing school, I completed a four-year apprenticeship as a design engineer, learning how to build cisterns and faucets. But after finishing my apprenticeship, I realised that this kind of work would not fulfil me in the long term.
