I really enjoy teaching (young) people music/drums.
It´s not just a "job"; I´m really thankful that i have the chance
to help people grow and see how fast they improve.
But it´s all about balance.
Working with different people in different genres is important for me.
I also play a lot of concerts as a sub. I accept every challenge.
In the last 10 years i played every gig i could get.
Now i´m trying not to dance at 14 different weddings…
