'I’ve always loved music, and I’ve always loved sound. Just a few months old, I started drumming the hell out of my mum's kitchen pots.
At the age of six, I invited my friends to record imaginary radio programmes on my
cassette recorder. As a teenager, I took my band's first audio interface home to study how to use it, because nobody wanted to read the manual.
By the time I was eighteen, I realized
I was dissatisfied with my mixes so far and wanted my productions to sound like the ones of my heroes. This was when I decided to go professional in music and audio and help other musicians achieving the best quality possible with their own recordings.'
