Born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Merlin found his love for BMX at only thirteen years old.
Seeing his friends progress and the urge to document this progression made him pick up his first camera at the age of fifteen and has been shooting photos and videos ever since.
Based on this enthusiasm, he began his career in action sports photography which takes him all over the globe and he still enjoys to this day.
