I do not have big or famous credits but I have the passion and every day more experience.
I studied as an electronic music producer and audio engineer at the SAE institute in Milan. Currently I work for the Swiss radio / television (RSI), I also collaborate with a recording studio for recording and mixing, everyone calls me some club as a sound engineer, I worked for a theater (Shows, concerts, etc ...) and I have a great passion for music at 360 degrees.
I started playing guitar, acoustic and electric at the age of 13, and at high school producing electronic music (Psydark, Tekno), using Ableton Live, taking my live sets to some small party.
Later I approached the production of Beat Hip-Hop, mainly for scratch sessions with friends, and some production with Rap singers from my city.
After the SAE institute I decided to form a Death Metal band, with which I am currently active all over Europe.
The school, my professional experiences and the work done with my band allowed me to learn a lot, even though I think I always have to learn.
I am familiar with many DAWs, plug-ins, analog and digital equipment, mixers, drum programming, virtual orchestras programming, editing, music production, audio restoration and of course with my instrument the electric guitar. I have helped many people with their projects, from arrangement to finalization.
