About

Since imitating the band KISS together with my best friend at the age of seven it was clear that music would play a major role in my life. I wasn´t wrong. Teenage days came and I picked up the guitar.

Absorbing everything from Indie to Metal as well as Jazz and playing in a band with my friends paved the way to make me become the musical person I am today.

I decided to become a professional musician and studied Jazz Guitar at the Rotterdam Conservatory and Berklee College of Music.

After moving to Berlin in 2002 something unexpected emerged and gave me a whole new perspective on music: The computer turned out to be a magnificent tool and all of a sudden I was able to create any kind of music I want and play it out to someone already the next day. What a revelation and a reason good enough to change my focus on music.

What inspired me about film music the most back then is still the reason why I love what I do today: No film or director is the same, every situation requires a new thought, a new sound and a new musical style and represents a new challenge.

In 2007 I won the VW Score Competition at the Berlinale with Oscar-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek in the jury and since then I have worked with many film makers from all over the world on numerous shorts, image films, commercials, many documentaries for ARTE  and the highly successful and award-winning television-series "Danni Lowinski".

My passion for electronic music finds its expression in collaborations as a producer with Berlin-based DJs, including remixes for Rosenstolz and Booka Shade amongst others.
