Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?
Vienna/Austria; I like the mix of cultures and the morbid mood of the viennese people. It is a center of culture and creativity in the world, many interesting events and exhibitions take place here. It is surrounded by a great nature too.

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
Photorealistic collages that are telling a story or containing a message.
Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?
This moment comes, when I had an idea or concept, and found all outside sources on google etc. Often, I change my concept during the search, and thats the thing making me most fun.
What is the limit to what you will chop?
Are there any tips and/or tricks that you would like to pass along to less experienced choppers?
What is your favorite type of source image, and why?
There is often talk about how the source is used and to what extent it should be. What are your views on all sources, outside source use and animations?
What is your preferred resource for outside source images?
Google, and sometimes selfmade fotos.
In your opinion what makes a good chop?
Clean technics, fitting lights and colours and a (funny) idea behind that all.
Do you have a system to get things started?
Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?
Yes, I thought it would not reach my own level.
After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?
If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?
What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?
Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?
Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?
I had chops from 5 Minutes (became even 2.!) and 9 hours (became also 2.).
We all love to get votes. Now are you a constant vote checker or do you just let it go and check once a day? (be honest)
As long as I am online, each single vote is received personally by me!
