Nils lives in a small town near Antwerp, Belgium. He started to play tenor drum in 2010 at the age of 16 with his first band, a local, non competitive band. After a year he joined the Antwerp metropolitan pipe band, a local 4b competition band.

In 2013 he played his first competition with the Antwerp and District Pipe Band in grade 2. That first major to Scotland was to the European Championships in 2015. When Antwerp Metropolitan became the official development band as Antwerp and district grade 4, in 2017, he started teaching the midsection. 

“I’m very excited for the near future. Playing with Dowco triumph street pipe band would be my first grade 1 experience.“
