Michael succesfully completed his studies in Communications Design with a Bachelor of Arts at the 'Hochschule fuer angewandte Wissenschaften Wuerzburg-Schweinfurt' in Wuerzburg, Germany, in 2016. Alongside with his courses, he was able to study one semester at the 'Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University' in Istanbul, Turkey, and to intern as a layout artist for 'One Mega- group Inc.' as well as 'Ideya Media' in Manila, Philippines.
Michael came into the arts in 2010 during a one year stay in the Philippines. Back then, he used to volunteer for the Manila based social institution 'Puso sa Puso'. During that time, Michael happened to become friends with photographers using pictures as a way of exposing social issues to the public. Inspired by that, he started to take photographs on his own.
Since then, Michael grew a passion for all kinds of visual arts. Nowadays, he mainly is active in the fields of graphic design, painting and photography.
