Born into a musical family in Los Angeles in August 1995, Linus soon made his first musical steps on the violin. At the age of nine he finally picked up the guitar which soon became his main instrument.

Linus holds a Bachelor degree from the Jazzcampus Basel, where he has studied with the likes of Peter Bernstein, Julian Lage, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Mark Turner and many others. In June 2019 he successfully graduated from the Masters program of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where Jesse van Ruller and Martijn van Iterson have been among his teachers.

His main Jazz project, "REBOP", a collaborative quintet featuring the iconic Jorge Rossy on vibraphone released its first record in November 2018 and frequently tours in the UK and central Europe. He also is a member of the Amsterdam based Dreampop band "tiigre", which released its first single "Paperboat" in June 2019.

As an educator, Linus teaches guitar in the young talent program of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
