Born in the Austrian Tyrol, Heinz lives in Wattens with his wife and two children, and likes to spend his leisure time in the company of his family and friends. The beautiful mountain scenery of the Tyrol provides him with a constant source of inspiration. 

Heinz worked in the Production Dept before becoming a Swarovski Designer. For almost twenty years, the talented toolmaker played a leading role in the production of Silver Crystal items, making tools for the production of Swarovski models, and engravings.

His first piece, the German Shepherd, was designed in 1999. The Fighting Fish is his favorite piece.

Heinz has been a prolific designer for Swarovski. His designs, include the Cobra, Camel, Grizzly and Cockatoo, as well as the Soulmates Panthers; Numbered Ltd Edition (NLE) Elephant, SCS Gecko, Siamese Fighting Fish, Longwang Crystal Myriad Dragon, Annual Edition (AE) Community, the Paradise Bee Eaters, Paradise Green Rosella, & NLE Bald Eagle.

Among his favorite activities are cycling and hiking, though he is equally at home in the world of art and culture. All these factors join to influence his artistic creations.
Heinz also enjoys designing and crafting wooden furniture.
