Bio

I embraced music since the age of 8. Extremely eager to absorb ALL the music in the world and driven to learn how to play on different instruments. Played the piano and the cello (most beautiful instrument out there, quite difficult to learn as well) when I was young, played the guitar since 1985 and finally picked up brass in 2006: the trumpet.I love the whole concept of Improvisation. Music made on the spot, to be never heard again like that. Coming up with melodies, riffs, rhythms, react and interact instantly with fellow musicians... Sometimes that sounds like crap, BUT sometimes it sounds like heaven. Those are THE moments.

In march 2010 I joined the local Funk/Soul band Uncle Sue to play the trumpet. We recently started wrtiting our own tracks. This is actually the first band i did actual live performances wIth. Check www.facebook.com/unclesue.

In the summerof 2008 i joined Boca Smole and Dooa Doob in the band My Head Radio (check www.myheadradio.com). They gave me the opportunity to combine this love for music, improvisation, all those different styles and musical ideas into music for the 21st Century.In 2009 i also started doing some tracks with a guy from Finland; Old Man Motel (check: www.reverbnation.com/oldmanmotel) and just recently added Guitars on an exististing track by LPB called Fly.
