curriculum vitae

Born in Sokolov in the Czech Republic in 1975


In 1990, after finishing elementary school, he entered the glass manufacturer Moser in Karlovy Vary as an apprentice student.

In 1993 he completed his studies with honors and soon after he was involved in the production process in the glassworks as a glassblower. At the age of 24 he became a master of glass, being one of the youngest in the history of the glassworks.

In 2002 he decided to learn more about glass than he had learned at Moser and he left the Moser glassworks. He took a job at Tom Bohemia 24% Pb. There he gained new experience with lead glass, and over the next decade he continued to work in a wide range of other glass factories; not only in the Czech Republic, but also abroad.
