I've been drumming for over 15 years, performing on stages from 3 to 3000 people. I have played on four full length studio albums, many EP’s and single releases. I have toured all over Europe, Russia, China, Japan and Australia on many occasions for months on end.

I am very accustom to playing along to a click track and using live electronics as that’s what I've been doing for the past 8 years in my current touring act.

I consider myself to be a confident rock drummer with influences from many different music genres, I would say that I am a quick learner and able to play different styles.

I am available for studio sessions, one off shows, festivals and tours.
