Born January 15th 1985 in Berne, Switzerland, he spent most of his childhood behind the drums. As a well-behaved boy, he only left his drumset to give his neighbours a short break. From the very first day, he took lessons with Stefan Kurzo (i.a. drummer at Beijing Symphony Orchestra). Just months later, he competed in several drumset-Championships in Switzerland successfully.
Today he is the drummer of the Post-Indie Band "YOKKO". Founded in 2010 and named as Rockstar Magazine's "Band To Watch" in 2011, YOKKO signed an US-Label deal just months later. Since then, YOKKO has performed with international artists including Nada Surf, Kensington, Mike + The Mechanics and The Temper Trap and played over 400 Headline-Shows in Europe and Japan. In 2013, the band received a Swiss Music Award as "Best Talent" for their debut album "Seven Seas" as well as a nomination for "Best Live Act" in 2014.
