About

I got my first toy drumkit at the age of 5. After destroying it successfully and not giving up convincing my parents that I wanted to become a drummer, they finally registered me at the local music school.

In 2003 I began studying at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna (drums and percussion for popular music and jazz as well as classical percussion). At the same year I began working as a professional drummer. In 2011 I had my master degree and began teaching drums at two schools around Vienna.

Musical credits vary from Jazz to Heavy Metal, here are some of the most important collaborations:

Agnes Milewski (2 studio albums, touring through Europe), Blue Jade (2 studio albums), Charlie Haynes, Crazy Heels, Daniel Küblböck (casting show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”, touring through Germany and Luxembourg), Far Beyond Innocence (1 studio album, shows in Austria and Germany), Gainsbourg "Vertraulich" with Johanna Wokalek (Burgtheater Wien,…), Grand Zeppelin, Hubert Tubbs (Tower of Power), Judith Hill (known from Michael Jackson's "This is it", Stevie Wonder,...), Pacheco, Pumpin’ Headphones, Purpendicular (Deep Purple Tribute-Band, Shows with Original Deep Purple members Ian Paice and Joe Lynn Turner; touring through Europe), Rainer Zufall, Sheila Fernandez, Starmix (exclusive shows at the F1 Grand Prix in Monaco), Supermoon, The Blues Revival Band, “The Rats Are Back” Big Band, University Big Band Vienna.
