I'm a multi-award winning Engineer, Composer & Sound Designer based in Scotland with studio specialising in Electronic music.
Paul was born in a small town in Scotland, UK. He first got his ear for audio at the age of 7 when he started learning to play the trumpet. Then at 10 years old he started learning piano and regularly played as 1st trumpeter in the school orchestra.
Since leaving school he went on to get a job to fund his growing studio equipment, music programs and sound libraries and shortly after went to college to study BSc Audio Engineering.
