About me

I am a professional musician based in Hannover, Germany. It is my goal to create my own unique way of expressing myself musically through combining the contemporary drumset playing with the sound variety of a percussion player and the modern approach of hybrid electronic and acoustic drumming.

I am working as a drummer, percussionist or ableton operator and sometimes as all of them at once. 

As a member of internationally acclaimed jazz group triosence and the indiepop group Planting Robots I am mainly playing original music and am fortunate live out my creative side as a composer as well.

But I am  happy and feel fortunate that I could accompany many artists as sideman as well. Besides my work in Germany I have been playing and recording around the globe with international artists like Hamid Baroudi (Algeria), Sara Gazarek (USA), Erik Platon (Slovenia), Tomislav "Tokac" Jovanovic (Slovenia),  Hsiao Huang Chi (Taiwan), Stefanie Heinzmann (Switzerland), Mohammed Mounir (Egypt), Houssaine Kili (Morocco), Nené Vásquez (Venezuela), Zarko Pak (Slovenia), Jimmy Dillon (USA), Debbie Clarke (Wales), Joy Basu (USA), Legacy (USA) and many more.

After finishing my studies at Los Angeles College of Music in 1997 I have been teaching e.g. at University of Osnabrück, Popakademie Mannheim, Musikhochschule Osnabrück or the Music College of Hannover. My international teaching experience includes lessons in France, Italy, USA, Austria and the Netherlands.
