Job at Mooncry
Playing the drums

Musical background
At the Age of 7 I began playing the drums in my hometown Friedrichshafen and never stopped again. During my education I learned to play many other Percussion instruments. I had my first band experiences back in 2007 which ended up in the metal coverband Iron Force. By the way, we and the guys from Mooncry were neighbours when the rehearsal rooms in the Bahnhofstreet in Tettnang still existed. With Iron Force we played several gigs until I had to quit in 2013 after my graduation and my move to Switzerland. Until the guys from Mooncry called in the middle of 2014, this was my first (and hopefully my last) musical break.
