ABOUT

Professional drummer, with over 20 years extensive experience both live and in the studio, in Europe and in the U.S. Played a variety of styles: Heavy Metal, Alternative Rock, Metal, Death Metal, Black Metal, Brazilian percussion, etc.

I've played on the same stage directly opening for bands like: Sepultura, Behemoth, Samael, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Canibal Corpse, Kreator, Moonspell, Amorphis, Sodom, Napalm Death, etc.

My playing style is very rhythmic with plenty of power and balance, and with progressive influences.
