He considers himself lucky to have played in fourteen countries so far and looks forward to the upcoming shows at home and abroad. Chris as he’s fondly called is also grateful for a year of study at The Collective New York City (formerly known as Drummers Collective), which he was able to complete in 1997. There he had the unique opportunity to learn from several legendary drummers in a brief period. And a huge thanks to all his music, drum, and piano teachers in Switzerland! ‘He said’

Finally, the following will remain an honor for him for eternity: Since winter 2018, an edited version of ‘Hie’ by the Rap group ‘Wurzel 5’ with his drum tracks has been running as the team anthem for the 1st men’s football (soccer) team of BSC Young Boys. Thank you chaps, merci YB! ‘he say’s
