At first he started taking drum courses at the Jerusalem Music School in Venray for 4 years, following 4 years of studying drums at the Herman Brood Academie in Utrecht. After his graduation in 2012 he started his fulltime drumcareer by playing in lots of different bands (mostly rock oriented music), teaching drums and providing workshops.
