Chief Editor & Layout
Which picture? Where to put it? which text? which image on the cover? The design, writing text, arrangement, and is the Magazine interesting for the reader?
I would call it responsibility for the creative mess in the magazine. Focal point for everything around FAB.
Behind the scenes – every production has that one person, everybody goes to when something is needed – no matter what. And that one person is now in charge to make this happen – or not happen. Whether it be to organize set construction and help when building, or help installing the photo setup (light, cables – yes cables!), slippers for the model as she has cold feet, drink, food, digital assistant, proofreading, legal administration, and, and, and….
And that is me – I am that person, who ties everything together behind the scenes. My mission in every shooting is to make everybody feel comfortable – only then all can deliver to their best!
Herited my father’s talent I followed his route and became a tailor and designer. After several years of working in fashion design I took the next step to expand my artistic skills and became a hair stylist.
It is my passion to make creative looks for international fashion & beauty magazines. I participated in Miss EARTH Switzerland and several other fashion and haute couture shows in Lausanne, Geneva, Montreux and Cannes.

Photography / Founder
All my professional life has ever since been influenced by my passion photography, I started with marketing studies and worked as a management consultant until 1985. In 1986 I discovered my creative side and began with photography and montage as a creative designer. In these very early days of computing age I created my first montages with computer graphics and image processing. Some of these early artworks were displayed in exhibitions. It was one of these unexpected moments which made me expand to a professional graphic designer.
A 10 year excursion as a marketing promoter in artist management began in 1996. At the same time I kicked off one of the very first music online magazines where I am the editor of still today.
I could work off my passion in both of these areas and this had a great influence on my further work. I am a passionate people photographer. I like to show a person´s insight. And when the perfect moment is around I catch it with my camera, that true expression with magic impression. Not every shooting has that perfect moment, but those who do deliver the result I love to show in my ictures.
Of course I also do commercial and such other stuff.. but my heart is with these very personal and intimate artworks.
