He started his adventure with samba in 2006 when he joined Samba Areia in Sand am Main, and thanks to his passion and dedication he soon became the co-leader of the group. Since 2007 he also supported Unidos do Sul thanks to which he came to contact with Samba Carioca, Samba style of the big Carnival schools from Rio de Janeiro. With immersion in this style and improvement of his repertoire and technique, above all on Chocalho, in 2008 he was invited to Bloco X, the association of best Samba players of Europe and since then he is also the section leader there. Ever since then he participates in many groups and events all over Europe, among others: Sziget Festival - Bloco X - Budapest - Hungary, Opening of the Karneval der Kulturen - Sapucaiu no Samba - Berlin - Germany, Przystanek Woodstock Festival - Bloco X - Kostrzyń - Poland, Festa na Quadra - Misto Quente - Paris - France, 15 ans de Bateria Alegria - Tours – France. He also repeatedly participates with different groups in Samba Festival in Coburg, which he has never missed since 2006. In 2014 he finally started a Samba group in Hofheim – Bateria Caliente. His next big goal is to parade with a Samba school through the Marquês de Sapucaí Sambódrome during the carnival at 30 degrees Celsius, to enjoy and feel the atmosphere of that moment.
