Biography

Started playing drums at the age of 8. My love for music and especially metal has given me so much over the years. And it´s my greatest passion in life playing drums still to this day. Touring and recording is a way of life I wouldn't trade for anything. With iconic players such as Bonham, Eric Carr and Dave Lombardo as inspiration, I turned to Paiste early on because I wanted to sound like my heroes. I´ve never looked anywhere else since. It´s a simple choice. Paiste for life.
