He was active in Dillingen (where he studied philosophy and law at the university), Eichstädt (where he played flute at the chapel of the Prince Bishop), Salzburg (where he undertook further studies with and befriended Michael Haydn) and Munich, where he played viola in the local court orchestra and died on 18 February 1833. His music included a German Requiem for four voices and two books of songs. With Joseph Otter and Pater Werigand Rettensteiner he wrote the Biographische Skizze von Michael Haydn.
