"Youtube is a bully pulpit to draw attention and showcase yourself. I believe my expertise is finding, developing new talents and being able to create the entire audio visual product of a recording artist/project, from writing the first lyric line, songwriting, toplining, music production, beatmaking, music video directing & shooting, to editing the last video frame. Seeing the vision and whole process come to life is simply amazing, for me, that's true art," says Not Profane grinning."

" I am convinced one should never stop believing in the talents god has provided one with and should always give 110%. Inspiring people and winning them over with something you love doing is an incredible accomplishment and provides an unbelievable level of satisfaction that is hard to describe and recreate with anything else. In my opinion, it is all about being able to reach people’s hearts with music."
Starting at a young age Not Profane spent his days on tennis courts all over the world. The Karlsruhe-born producer, songwriter and singer always wanted to become a professional tennis player and he loves Padel Tennis. Not until quite late at seventeen actually, he discovered his passion for music, inspired by a visit to a "Britney Spears" concert.
"The moment I saw the crowd singing along from the bottom of their hearts, I knew for sure this is what I want to do."
This was when he replaced his tennis racket, which can still be spotted in many of his videos, either leaning against a keyboard or a computer, with music. Had it not been for his sister and mother wanting to take music lessons and leaving a piano at home at his display, he might have never discovered his love for music. Having no prior experience or knowledge in sheet music, he started composing songs on this seemingly simple instrument, solely based on hearing and “feeling” the sounds.
"Thank God," all has happened as it should. This is how his artist name "Not Profane" came about. When you take a closer look at his logo you might even discover a small cross, a symbolism of his faith. This is an indication that he doesn't see a need to hide his faith in Jesus, much more, he is proud and uses it as inspiration for himself and hopefully for others.
He also encountered faith, miracles and angels while being in Cologne, Germany when he did the preproduction of the single "Life Is A Miracle" of one of the most successful German girl bands called "No Angels".
During the current stage of his life he spends day and night at his studio, producing and pursuing his dream, while sleepless nights go past him, only one goal in sight – “making it” in this so competitive industry that has grown to be his love since age seventeen.
