about me

As the drummer for legendary electro-pop giants OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). I played on classic OMD songs such as Enola Gay, Messages, Souvenir, Locomotion, Tesla Girls, Talking Loud and Clear, Secret, So in Love, American block buster If You leave and the smash hit Maid of Orleans. I’ve put my drumming stamp on a massive catalog of OMD songs that have amassed over 40 million in sales and 100’s of millions of streams. In 2014 I hung up my OMD drumsticks.


For those that are interested here's a bit of info of where I've been and where I'm going.


From my studio I play and program drums. I also write and produce music. If you are making music you can find out what I can do for you here.

I stopped playing drums but didn't stop making music.

After a long career playing with OMD it has come to an end. Making music is in my blood … I create music from my studio near Hamburg in Germany. If you are looking for a music producer for your project you can contact me below or via You will get deep experience,  a friendly service and respect for your music.
