Stranger was a Swapper on Atari ST & Amiga from 1988 to 1995. He also was Organiser, Packer, Gfx and Text editor. He returned to the scene in 2020 as a member of Hemoroids, Rebels, DLG Crew.

Stranger started in 1983 on Commodore 64. In 1989 he joined The Corporation (TCR) on Atari ST as main swapper and original supplier. At the end of 1991 TCR stopped, but Stranger wanted to continue his scene activities. That's when Sink/HMD, whom he had met at the TCR Copy-Party, proposed him to join Hemoroids.

Stranger convinces some motivated ex-TCR members, Axel (coder) and Nexxus (gfx) to follow him, and organizes
with Sink (leader) to continue HMD which had not released any productions for 2 years. Thanks to his many contacts, Stranger recruits most of the new HMD members. It is at this moment that he brings in Dieu (gfx), Jace (coder), AJT (musician), Aardschock (coder) and Nucleus (coder). He also formed a section in Iceland with Duri-17, KaosB and MMM, as well as the Amiga section with STC (coder, leader) in 1992.

In parallel Stranger wrote the monthly "demos" section of ST Mag together with MarcoPolo (PD Distributor) after ST Connexion stopped. In 1993 Stranger started to create the Speedy Pack series of Atari ST demo packs. As he were a good friend of DefKlf/Mad Vision, HMD got the rights to publish the famous AMAZINE and Stranger wrote some articles.

At the end of his army time in 1995, he did like most of the sceners who left... and chose to devote himself totally to the Graffiti movement and techno parties.

Stranger has regained his taste for the scene during the summer of 2018, thanks to a visit at Sink's HQ. In June 2019 Stranger decided to create a private group
on Facebook "Demoscene Logo Gallery" (DLG) which gathers today more than 1900 members from all scenes (C64, Amiga, Atari ST, PC, Atari 8Bit, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Consoles...).

In 2020, Sink reintegrates him into HMD. Stranger also joined REBELS and created the DLG Crew in 2021, a new group on PC, closely linked to the private Facebook group "Demoscene Logo Gallery".
