Started at the age of 11 with listening to a tape of the Grandmix ´86 by Ben Liebrand. He knew that dance music was his thing in life. After many years of practicing mixing music with turntables and tapedecks and entering numerous of contests.

In those days his love for harder styles was finally outed with his track "Burning Up", wich was a small hit in Holland and Germany.
After this release, he did a remix on the classic track "The Ultimate Seduction" wich became an instant hit on the harder styles dancefloors around Europe.
After releasing 5 tracks on different labes like Tindy Tunes, Tremble Tracks and Skip Records, he felt that it was time to grow more in sound and style. And take a bit more time for family and friends...
