He's been playing in bars, hotels, restaurants, weddings, birthday parties for the last few years. In 2016 he met Filipa Amaro and Nuno Gonçalves, they became close friends. The group started a band which would later become RAPTURE.
It was from an early age that he realised that music was the path he wanted to follow, he was only 10 years old when he started taking drum lessons, studying with great drummers like Gustavo Gonçalves, Koen Van Esch and Michael Luren.
