This is me.

I was born in Germany 1986 and was raised in a family with a huge love for music, of every genre.
Not surprisingly, it didn’t take long until I took my first music lesson in guitar, at the age of 4. I performed in my very first concert at the age of five. A few years later I added piano lessons to my music education, and teacher of mine introduced me to computers, and a great love for synthesizing sound through that medium began. As a teenager I explored more and more instruments, and work with a drum set opened my eyes to rhythm, letting me express the beats I felt in my heart out into the world.

While making music, I kept very busy, going to school and completing a university degree in management and computer science. But I was having fun too! A decade of partying in the techno/trance scene in Europe opened my ears and heart more and more to electronic music and solidified my interest in increasingly complex wave forms of sound synthesis. My personal musical style is based on eclectic tracks, diverse music styles and sounds that fuel my creativity and inspire me to create and conduct my own music.

Along the way I crossed paths with like-minded creative people. I met a friend in 2010 that shared my love for beats and my drive, and together we entered the music scene in 2011, under the name of Tailgate Chamber. We played our music all over Germany in several live gigs, from Heidelberg to Hannover, loving every moment of it.

It was great fun, but it was time to move on: I left Europe behind, and currently I am a “global citizen” and plan to spend the next few years traveling the world. I’m working on different music projects, and my guitar and computer follow me everywhere. Unplugging and getting away from it all has let me concentrate on my music, and dedicate myself to listening to the sound inside, and working on that powerful engine that is at the heart of my creative self, the source of my new music.
Combining my diverse life experiences, my notes, sounds, harmonies, melodies and lyrics, and fueled by the inputs from musicians I have met in the many countries I have explored, I’m ready for a new chapter in my life.
