I am a musician, audio engineer and producer and worked for companies such as Nike and Sky Television. I had an education as an audio engineer and won the mixing contest of one of the biggest and innovative studios in Germany, the HOFA Studios, well known for their incredible plugins.
Early on, I had instrumental classes for piano, organ and violin and have a degree as a church musician and audio engineer. I started mixing for a postpunk project based in Madrid. They hired me, because they knew, that I mixed my own stuff before and after a while, I had the wish to do it in a professional way. So I went to the HOFA college, to learn how to mix like a pro. Later on I took additional classes for mastering, also at HOFA and Ian Shepherd´s course. I mixed a lot of Indie and Gothic bands and built up my studio in Germany which has great acoustics.
I offer mixing and mastering and I am very familiar with the gothic and the alternative scene. Recently I mix and master more and more electronic music (EDM, House). Because of my musical education, I also produce music if I have some time left, that means composing music for film and commercials.
