I received my barber training in one of Great Britain’s most prestigious barbershop’s, a place where unique techniques were made a priority. Following the completion of my advanced training, I started working as a Style Director and simultaneously had shows with the International Artistic Team, London. Conducting seminars and spreading know-how has always been part of my life. Being a barber is my passion, it is not a job – it is my life philosophy.
In 2016, I decided to open the first traditional, American technique based, MEN-ONLY barbershop in Graz, Austria and HOLY TIGER BARBERSHOP was born.
Hard work and the constant urge to improve my techniques and creations further is what I stand for and can be characterized by. Being a barber is my passion and I can only be content when I know that I have given everything. This indomitable will has so far helped me achieving my goals and also won me some awards as for instance 1st place „Austria’s Best Barber”& 3rd place “Best International Barber”, (2017). I also partook at the Austrian Hairdressing Award in 2019 where I presented my new collection creations. My hard work paid off again, I won “Austria’s Hairdresser of the Year 2019 – Category: Men, East”.
After I launched my hair-stylist-collection that was inspired by subcultures and famous personalities from “the good old times” – I decided that it was time to pass this unique craft on to anyone interested. HOLY TIGER BARBER ACADEMY was born – Graz, Austria’s first traditional barber academy. Women and men are very welcomed here.
Instructing, educating and teaching others about how to become a barber is one of my great passions. Thanks to the knowledge I can provide, I am able to travel the world and am taking part at various events all around the world as for instance in Porto Alegre, Brasil Sao Paulo, Chile – just to name a few.
Since 2019 I also have a strong sponsor-partner by my site called “WAHL-GmbH”. It is one of the most renowned addresses to go to when it comes to anything regarding barber tools.
