Born in Braunschweig, presumably in 1883. He started his career in 1907 in Kassel.
He was successful as Lohengrin at guest appearances in Hamburg, Hannover and Dessau, all in 1908.
From 1909, he was heldentenor in Halle, making guest appearances in Karlsruhe, Weimar and Leipzig.

In 1914, he became the only
heldentenor in his native Braunschweig. He was completely overworked. Within one year, he took up
Erik, Tannhäuser, Stolzing, Siegmund und Siegfried. In 1915, his voice was almost gone, and the director was relieved to
see him drafted. From then on, nothing is known about him.
