He was born in 1962, Lucerne, Switzerland.  He began his musical education with his father, who passed on him his passion for the double bass. Then he continued his studies all around Europe with Jaques Cazauran, Ludwig Streicher or Franco Petracchi.

He has been honored in many competitions and since 1981 he is member of the Geneva Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, where he is solo double bass.

As a chamber musician he has collaborated with Christian Zacharias, Vadim Repin and  “Les Beaux-Arts” Trio, among others.

Eager to spread the instrument repertoire, he often performs in concerts and has founded the double bass quartet “Tutti Bassi”.
