About meI play drums for a living and love Jazz and creative and soulful music. Originally from Germany, I've been living in the Netherlands since 1999. Creating music and sharing it with an audience is one of the greatest blessings I know and fortunately my possibilities to do so keep expanding. I also love to combine music and other disciplines such as dance, theatre and poetry and hope to do this more and more in the near future.
I recently acted in a theatre play which I really enjoyed a lot. Hopefully more will come of this, too!
I think the common denominator of all forms of Art is to tell stories and/or create moods through different means.

I belive that all aspects of life basically follow the same rules and principles which eventually lead back to understanding one's own mind. The exploration and liberation thereof are a big inspiration to me. This is where Buddhism and other precious teachings come in and provide constant guidance. I should add, though, that I'm also quite good at looking away from problems before actually solving them...

That said, being a sucker for good stories I can waste endless hours watching movies and television series. I'm also an "Internerd" and no stranger to surfing the Web 2.0 for a whole day. Add to that a habit of spending too much money on CDs, books, comics and electronics and you get an idea of what keeps me occupied.

I won the "Dutch Jazz Competition" (with my band "Robinson, Freitag & Caruso") at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2005 and received the prize for "Best Soloist". I also played at the festival in 2006 and 2007 and would like to make that a recurring tradition! :-)
