BIOGRAPHY 

'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 inventory.

At the age of six, I invited my friends to record imaginary radio programmes on my

cassette recorder.  Simultaneously, I took my first piano lesson, adding more and more instruments to my portfolio further down the road. 

As a teen, I took my band's first audio interface home to figure it out, as nobody wanted to read the manual.

Turning eighteen, I realized I wanted my productions to sound like those of my heroes. 

This was when I decided to go professional in music and audio to help other musicians achieve the best quality possible with their own recordings.'
