Music was and still is the most important thing in my life - apart from living people. I always wanted to become a musician and write songs....but then I ended up as a drummer.... ;-)
I gathered my very first experiences in a percussion-group (at the age of 8 years). After my 10th birthday I got my first solo-drum lesssons at the music school in Konstanz.
I've been playing the drums without a break eversince.
Since 1998 I am a member of Edguy. I am playing with one of Germany's most successful hardrock/metal bands.
We are touring the world – Europe, Asia, USA, Canada, South America, Australia, Russia etc. - and we are one of the first western rockbands who played in Israel and China.
Since 2008 I am playing in „Tobis Sammet´s Avantasia“ (live and studio)
I also played some shows with Gus G (ex – Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), Operation Mindcrime, Khymera and Masters of Ceremony.
I am also doing Drum Clinics and Drum Workshops.
It is important for me to include energy, precision, creativity and new ideas in my way of playing drums.
Rock music calls for powerful drumming – but dynamics and feeling are also very important. Keeping an open mind is essential.

Mapex Drums provide the sound, power, durability and quality I need to play drums the way they are supposed to be played!
