About meGet in Touch

Who I am

I am a musician, sound engineer and producer with more than 25 years of experience in recording studios and all kind of stages and venues around the world. People might know me for my work in the German power metal band GammaRay.

What I do

I play bass, guitar and a little keyboards. I sing backing vocals and choirs. I do audio recording, mixing, mastering and producing. I also work as FoH-, monitors- and stage/backline technician, tour manager and tour accountant.

Where I live

I currently live in Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico and in Hamburg, Germany. I can offer all my services in both places and start touring from anywhere.

Bass Player

As a musician my best skill is probably being a versatile and experienced bass player. Well known as bassist of GammaRay, I also play many different styles of music, such as Rock, Pop, Blues, Soul, Funk, Fusion & Jazz besides all that metal stuff. I’m the right man for any finger-, pick- or slap style bass you need.

Audio Engineer

All about that sound – fitting best to the music. Having a good time with the bands and artists, technical perfectionism and my musical knowledge, seasoned with some natural „mud“ are the qualities in terms of recording, mixing and producing in any location you can imagine.
