I was born in Fluelen/Switzerland in 1976. My father introduced me to fine woodworking and wood craft at an early age, thus kindling my enthusiasm for this natural and renewable resource. I have 18 years experience as a cabinetmaker Switzerland and foreign countries and started my own business – Schnitz Ltd – in 2010. Solid wood cabinetmaking is my specialty.

My other passion is travelling. Travelling by bike through remote countries or sailing across the Pacific Ocean are inspirational. My woodworking style is influenced by the natural and beautiful shapes I encounter on these journeys. Despite my extended stays abroad my roots are in Switzerland. Today I have my own workshop in my hometown Flüelen/Switzerland.
