Drummer, musician, optimist, enjoyer of life!
Born 1984 in Skärvången, a tiny town of 60 people in the northern part of Sweden. I grew up doing a lot of outdoor sports and fell in love with the beauty of the nature at a very early age.
At the age of 12 (1997) I started playing drums, which completely changed my life.
I did a lot of live gigs and recordings with various bands in Sweden over the years, but in 2009 I decided to move to Los Angeles to attend PIT at the world´s famous Musicians Institute, best decision I ever made!
I got to study with the best teachers in the industry for 1,5yrs. Learned a ton about different styles, technique, reading and sound. I was also lucky to form a band, Polarization which got signed by a recordlabel and toured all over the states. Amazing experience!
After my time at Mi I attended a programming/webdesign program at UCLA for 15 months. I finished strong with two more degrees and a little more knowledge under my belt. The last year in LA (2012) I was touring and doing freelance sessionwork and webdesign work.
Music is my life and the journey has been great! it´s been everything from: marching band, jazz bigband to dansband and deathmetal.
