I started playing when I was 10 years old. For 4 years I took lessons at a public music school in my home city. Then I changed to a private teacher for about 4 years and finally to the brilliant drummer, Harry Reischmann. At the age of 13 I joined in a local rock band called "Walk on Water" for about two years, doing live gigs and studio recordings. At the same time I started drumming in a church band in Ulm/Germany (Ecclesia Ulm) until today. Besides that, I am working and recording with a friend of mine, Benni Witopil, excellent guitar player and songwriter, and, from time to time, drumming for a local rap-crew, the very special "Straight Rhymez". So far, I've been playing with various cymbals, but my new Soultone cymbals are absolutely outstanding and the very best I ever played with!
