I make music since the late 1980’ies, all the way from silly school bands to pretty successful electronic and pop projects to film music and sounddesign, corporate sounds and commercials.

I ve been on stage as lo fi guitarist, singer, kinda-keyboarder and laptop artist. With Filewile i toured in Mexico , in South Africa and Western Europe from 2003 to 2011.
