Hi, and thanks for visiting!

In recent years I've performed at venues around Europe (Switzerland, Netherlands, UK) in genres such as: Funk Rock, Blues, Rock, Hybrid-Progressive Folk, and Pop - on the Drum Kit, Cajon and on other percussion instruments. I relocated to the UK in 2016 to explore a larger music scene, but stay in touch with the Swiss community as much as possible.

A Theatre enthusiast myself, I've had the pleasure to take on the percussion and/or drum chair on productions by:
- Italia Conti (2017), Guildford School of Acting (GSA) (2020), Filippos Zarfeiadis (GR, 2019)
- Performance Preparation Academy (ppa, 2019)
- TRW Summer School (2020).
These sessions have enabled me to work with an inspiring crew and Musical Directors such as : Brady Mould, Kevin Oliver Jones, Nathan Dawe and Dimitra Bakalgianni.

In September 2019 I was invited to join Drum Works (Barbican) as a tutor in their team, regularly working in Schools across East London, co-leading their sessions and performing at public events and drumming with over 60 young people every week.

At Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), where I completed my BA(Hons) in Music Industry practice and performance, I had the opportunity to receive education from tutors such as Pete Riley (Republica, Guthrie Govan), Toby Drummond (Jersey Boys, Chicago, Lion King, Billy Elliot) and Andrew Small (Kylie, Massive Attack).

Back in my home town, Zurich, I studied with Andy Brugger (Professor at Zürich University of Arts 'ZHdK') and Felix Perret (Musik Konservatorium Zurich, MKZ) in preparation for my leap across the channel.
