On his 14th birthday, Toni got an analog SLR camera as a present from his parents. This triggered a passion for any form of visual or artistic design. In 2003, this led him to study architecture in Innsbruck and Lisbon (PT) from which he graduated in 2011. Right after his studies, sonaar was founded and thus allowed him to develop his professional and artistic identity as an image maker. He teaches at the faculties of architecture of the universities of Vaduz (LIE), Nanjing (CHN) and Innsbruck (AT).
His big love for the mountains and their atmospheres can be found in many of his works. Toni lives and works in Innsbruck.
