In 1694 he became a citizen of the city of Leitmeritz, where he was councilor and guild elder of the masons from 1718 to 1732 . In this role he also translated the Czech version of the guild regulations into German. As a successor to his father, he became the city and diocesan master builder of Leitmeritz.
