Personal music history

Started with Akkordeon, Piano and Keyboard in the age of 7, with 14 I changed to guitars because I got bored to stand in the back of my band as keyboard-player :) With 16 I got lessons by Sascha Gerstner of Halloween for around 3 years. With 21 I had my first job in big cover-rock/metal in southern Germany with around 100 shows a year. With 26 I got a call by the Austrian Symphonic Metal Band VISIONS OF ATLANTIS to become their new guitarist. In 2011 I did my first shows and tours with Serenity and in 2015 I finally found my current home with this „Scheiss Tirolern“ :D:D:D

Goals for the future

Everlasting happiness and personal health for me and everyone around me - and maybe becoming one of the biggest metal acts in the world :D
