His first experience in a band (Sacrament) was in 1992, and a year later he got his first drumkit (Trax). It was 1994 when he got his first doublepedal, Premier brand. He has studied in various places through the years, for example: Soitin Mirsch (with Matti Oiling), music school Tauko (with Tero Seppänen) and Oulunkylä's Pop/Jazz conservatory (with Timo Roiko-Jokela, Miri Miettinen etc).
