I grew up in Vienna and London. I spent most of my childhood on the shooting range since I was on the national team of skeet shooting. I discovered the guitar when I was around 15 while changing from one high-school to another in which it was mandatory to learn an instrument. At first I was quite pissed about that, but I soon discovered my future passion. After playing the guitar for about 2 years I also got into audio engineering. After school I started my first studio and went to SAE. In 2012 I split up with my old band Dragony and searched the internet for a new band. This led me to Daedric Tales.
