Coming from a musical family (my father was the drummer for Polish pop band 'Kombii'), I started banging on pots and pans at the age of 2 and got my first real drumset at the age of 12. I then studied drums in Bremen and have also taken lessons at The Modern Music School of Sopot (Poland), The Stanislaw Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdansk (Poland) and I was also lucky enough to take a course at the prestigious Kontaktstudiengang Popularmusik ('The Popkurs') in 1999.
I played in several local bands in Bremen until I got my first professional job at the age of 16. Since then I have been working as a professional drummer, and over the years I have played with artists from all over the world, and have been fortunate enough to tour internationally in countries such as Canada, UK, France, Japan, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, and of course Germany and Poland.
I have had the opportunity to work with some great artists and producers on stage and in the studio as a Drummer, Songwriter or Producer including the following:
Abbamania, Abbagold, Bonita, Lea Finn, Peter Keller (Peter Maffay, Wunder), Copek, Charlie a´Court, Turboflowers, Jamsick, Polarstern, Wunder, Elin, Double o´Soul, Guesthouse, Gear 11, Mark Tavassol (Wir sind Helden), Johannes Strate (Revolverheld), Robin Grubert, Ralf Rieker (Die Happy), Derek Marshall (Tarzan-the Musical), Ulrich Rode (Rosenstolz, Jenniffer Kae etc.), Paulsrekorder, Sönke Rust (Glam, rusty 66, Jenniffer Kae, ich + ich), Sven Bünger (Madsen, Cultured Pearls, Soulounge), Stephan Gade (Michy Reincke, Niels Frevert), Wolfgang Stach (Guano Apes), Rasmus Borowski (film composer),Jonas and the massive attraction, the blues shop trio
