I found my love to heavy metal at the age of 12 years when I first heard Deep Purple and Iron Maiden and got my first guitar at the age of 16.
Finally, after six years as a self-taught, I began my guitar studies at Munich Guitar Institute MGI, which I completed successfully. After a first experience in two bands, I joined Munich`s Wave-Rock band „Beyond Pleasure" in 1994 and recorded my first CD titled „The Cry".
After my departure, I was with the musical „Little Shop of Horrors" and founded the gothic rock band „Shadowland" in 1999 with the female opera singer Morgan Lorrai. The first release „Fürstin der Nacht" was produced by Carlos Peron, the second one „Hyperion" was self produced, but never released.
Then, in 2003, I came into the medieaval rock band „van Langen" and released three albums with them - „Zeychen der Zeit", „Heilige Lieder" and „Zeytreise". While numerous concerts (including touring with Haggard and Cultus Ferox) across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the line-up often changed and as a result of this it came to the dissolution of the band.
After a short trip to Munich`s Hard-Rock heroes „The Roxx" - for which I recorded the album „Ironic Truth" - I finally found my home at the Munich`s Power-Metal institution StormHammer.
