About me

I am a multi-skilled sound engineer/music producer, sound designer and music artist. Currently based in London, during the day I produce my own/my clients' music and in the evening I teach the electronic music courses at SAE Institute in London or perform across Europe. I take on board music production projects characterised by a strong artistic personality, which most of the time entail a certain degree of experimentalism and forward-looking vision. My strength is the ability to understand the essential musical personalities of my clients and the capacity to translate them in the productions through creative sound design, mixing and mastering. My work as a sound designer/music artist focuses on translating concepts and emotions in sonic form. Clients in this field span from VR/VR experience developers to film producers, game developers and brands. My strength comes from 7 years of experience in translating emotional/psychological traits into music and sound.
