Markus started with performing arts in the early teenage years of his life within theater and music. Since then he’s been performing constantly, not letting the stage empty. He was introduced to improv in 2010 and immediately fell in love with the freeing, open-minded and agreeing world of improv. Trained in clownwork, music and acting, he’s a lightning-fast physical player with an ability to slow down for intimate and touching scenes. Working as a drama and special educations teacher gave him a strong pedagogic foundation for training improv. It all lead to him founding his own improv company, where he coaches improv for different groups and corporations, nationally and internationally. Through improv he’s learned to be more relaxed and focused as a performer, more confident as a human being, and on top of that, gained a limitless amount of laughter and happiness in his life.
