some of my
I was born 1984 in Hagen/Germany (near Dortmund).
At young age I was already fascinated by bands, instruments, awaiting stages and music in general. I began to learn drums at the age of ten. Four years later I started playing in bands. Then - with nearly fifteen - I felt attracted to the guitar, so I grabbed it every day. My father taught me the basics and it became my main instrument.
A few years later I finally decided to agree with my inner voice for being a professional musician.
