My motto: A day without laughter is a day not lived!

I began playing drums at the age of 14 in my grandparents attic. Since then I’ve played many styles of music in different bands. After 9 years of playing in the style of Weezer and Dead Kennedy’s I switched over to metal; at which time we also recorded an EP. My next musical venture was in the style of Muse that lasted approximately 7 years until I was approached by the metal band XerpentoR. This band stopped rather quickly and I decided to take a sabbatical.

During a vacation, I received a text from Aeilko asking if I knew someone who could help with his project Hardland. I wasn’t really looking for something for myself but thought it sounded quite interesting. After meeting with the guys at Paul’s house I knew I wanted to be a part of this. Many moons later my urge to perform and record music has grown enormously!!
