„I  was born in 1981 in Detmold, a small town in Germany and started playing the guitar at the age of 13. At the time, I was listening  to Guns n Roses and Slash became my idol. He inspired me to start playing the guitar. It was at my 13th birthday when I got my first guitar. My fingers started bleeding learning the first chords but I got addicted!  During my first 2 years of playing I had a teacher showing me the basics to get started. I practiced a lot and fell in love with playing the guitar.

After I moved to Dusseldorf, I studied  most of the time by myself, had my first band experience and started gigging around. In 2002 I met my band mates, which led to founding “Roomers”.

We just released our third studio album called “Feelings”. I started having some lessons with Martin Miller in 2010 who is a great player and became a good friend. I  learned alot from him and I’m  always trying to get better and challenging myself to improve.

Nowadays I am touring a lot with Roomers , I also have a cool side project called Yugoton, a Balkan cover band!

A lot of musicians have influenced me throughout the years. I really love every kind of music! Here are a few musicians that influenced me the most: Slash, Gary Moore, Jeff Beck, Malmsteen,Eric Johnson, Michael Lee Firkins, Guthrie Govan, Scott Henderson, Victor Wooten,Joe Satriani,Steve Vai, Mike Stern, Martin Miller, Tom Quayle, Joe satriani, John Petrucci and many others.“
