While still studying he gained diverse professional experience in orchestras as a student apprentice in the Staatsoper Stuttgart and as a member of the Orchestra Academy of the Symphonieorchster des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Further projects led him to play in such renowned orchestras as the hr-Sinfonieorchester, the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the WDR Symphony Orchestra and the Munich Chamber Orchestra. Shortly after his first engagement with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, he became a member of the MDR Symphony Orchestra, where he is the Principal Double Bass.
