Born July 31st 1969 in Berlin, Germany, 'Storm' started dancing as a little child, but seriously cought on to the dances Bboying, Popping and Locking at the age of 14. His first tours he did for "Bravo Breakdancesensation 84". Soon after that, the big fashion 'Breakdance' died out. Nevertheless, he didn't stop studying styles, got connected with other Bboys and stayed creative and productive throughout the times when Breakin´was considered obsolete.

By 1991 his group "Battle Squad" was one of the leading bboy groups worldwide and thanks to them and others, the art of Bboying is so alive and strong these days.

In 1991 and 1992 him and his crew Battle Squad won the "International Battle Of The Year". Because of the struggle in times when Bboying was out of fashion and the fact that he´s been dancing for so long, he decided to establish Hip-Hop culture in the theater world.

From 1992 on he danced with a New Yorker dance Company called 'GhettOriginal'. he performed shows in Washingtons 'Kennedy Center' and in NYCities 'Lincolncenter'.

During the same period he was hosting the Hip-Hop Magazine 'Freestyle' on the german TV channel Viva.

Briefly after quitting the job in early 1996, he decided to form a dance company in his hometown Berlin, which was called the 'Storm and Jazzy Project'. With two choreographs they toured many different theaters around the world The first performance was seen in February 1997 in the "Maison de la Danse" in Lyon, France.
