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 other percussion instruments. I relocated to the UK in 2016 to join a larger music scene, after leaving my tiny origin behind: Switzerland.

 

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) and the 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 the Drum Works team (Barbican) as a tutor, 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.

Next to various projects, I travel around London and Surrey as a peripatetic drum tutor, providing 1:1 drum lessons to students of all ages. Additionally, I'm involved in co-leading Samba Workshops and teaching young musicians at The Academy of Contemporary Music, where I completed my BA(Hons) degree in Music Industry Practice & Performance in 2018. There, 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 was coached by  Andy Brugger (Professor at Zürich University of Arts 'ZHdK') and Felix Perret (Musik Konservatorium Zurich, MKZ) in preparation for my leap across the channel.
