He started his professional carreer in 1984 touring through clubs throughout north Germany for a youth magazine tour called „Bravo“. „Breakdancesensation 84“. Soon after that, the ‚Breakdance‘ fashion died out, but Storm simply ignored the fact. He kept on studying styles, got connected with other B-boy remnants and stayed creative and productive throughout the times when Breaking was considered obsolete. By today Storm is held responsible in large parts for the worldwide cultural reoccurrence of Breaking.
