Born in 1983 in Leoben, Austria.
Christian grew up in a musical family in northern Styria. After a homemade drum set, consisting of biscuit tins and a manure shovel, was broken, he got his first real drum set at the age of 5 years.  
In the same year, there was his first gig. He learned to play drums mainly as an autodidact and has received support from his father. Christian performed with his first pop/rock band at the age of 12 years.  From 17 years onwards he became a professional  drummer in various projects and bands. He is active in numerous bands of different styles as a sideman and substitute.  Above all, the work as a sideman - with the ability to adapt in a very short time to musical environment - made him a well-employed live and studio - musician in the Austrian music scene (Credits, Soundz/Videos).
