After becoming a master hairstylist, he underwent practical training as a make-up artist at the Ulm Theatre.
This was followed by a contract as Chief Make-up Artist at the St. Gallen Theatre in Switzerland.
It was at this time that he became interested in film and television work as he felt the need for a new challenge.
He therefore decided to go to Hollywood on his own initiative to train in make-up specials effects.
Only three months later he was already working on his first Hollywood film, a Bible epos, the first of many
productions during his four-year Los Angeles Stay and the beginning of his career as a make-up
and make-up special effects artist of international repute.
