I was born in 1981. I am known as the initiator of the referendum for non smoking protection in Bavaria. In the Catholic Church, I am involved as crisis intervention priest and organizer of light installations. I was the national chairman of the Ecological Democratic Party (ÖDP) and councilor in the city parliament of Passau. In addition, I run a company (StadtLux) for theater-costume guided tours in Austria. I live in Passau in Bavaria.
