His passion for drums started by listening to his older brother rehearsals which led him to several years of practicing and playing live with many ‘covers’ groups, yet with a secret desire of having a progressive band.Only at 28 he founds what was meant to be his main musical adventure up to date by joining Forgotten Suns. He was the roadie for the band and became the official drummer. Over the years he developed a huge drumming personality present on albums like ‘Snooze’, ‘Innergy’ or the EP ‘Revelations’.Meanwhile he played drums on Ava Inferi for their albums and tours, currently teaches drums both privately and at Escola de Guitarra Duarte Costa in Lisboa.
