I started at the age of 5 years with modern dance (group of Irena Kosíková), later I began with piano studies. 1997 I have completed a high school. Then I began to study composition at the conservatory in Prague in the class of Otomar Kvěch. Meanwhile I worked as choirmaster and choir singer, I started to study conducting with Hynek Farkač at the conservatory in Prague, I studied languages (Russian, Italian, German). 2002, after having accomplished the conservatory, I moved to Vienna where I followed studying composition at the University of Music in Vienna with Dietmar Schermann, then with Erich Urbanner and ultimately with Chaya Czernowin. I finished my studies 2008. The short operas The Cheerful Court have been awarded as the best new production of the year at the festival „Opera 2001“ in Prague. My opera Biedermann and the Fire Raisers has been awarded 2008 with the Upcoming-Artist-Award of the austrian Federal Ministry of Culture. Austrian state scholarship for composition 2011. Currently the organization of concerts takes the great part of my professional (and private) life, not only due to existential constrains.
