Born 1968 in Celle, living in Munich.

1983 “My schoolmate’s older sister of got back from a one years visit as an exchange student from New York City. She brought the first information on Hip Hop and Graffiti to me, so from these times on my life was filled with „style“. It took me just one summer to bomb all available walls in that small town. So the decision of mother to move to Munich opened a much wider playground to me …”
