He started playing music when he was fourteen, after hitch-hiking to the next bigger city and buying a pair of bongos. Increasing my percussion set, he had my first groups. After school he worked in a studio for photography in Cologne. At the same time he got more and more interested in improvised and experimental music. As a member of the artist group 'Heinrich Mucken', founded in 1982, he got involved in site specific art projects. He studied art in Cologne and Visual Communication in Kassel(MA). His visual interest shifted towards the use of light in three dimensional spaces. Now he lives in Berlin, working as musician and visual artist.
