about me

I have been working as a professional musician and saxophone player for more than 15 years. After graduating my studies of Jazz and Pop saxophone at ArtEZ Conservatorium Arnhem in the Netherlands I started my career as an independent musician, composer and producer (e.g. for star chef and singer Nelson Müller).

I am playing in many different bands and formations both nationally as well as internationally. My home base is the city of Essen (Germany). From here no journey is too far for me to support you and your event with my saxophone.

Music is my motivation, my mission, my life.
