I am a quite experienced sound engineer and composer who loves to work on film and video game soundtrack scoring and music productions in general.I work remotely in my home studio in Athens with passion and musical creativity. I have worked on indie pc game soundtracks like "Seed of the Arcane" and other musical projects.

I work on scoring and production with high quality VST Software for film/video game soundtrack or sound design.I also work on audio editing of instruments,samples and vocals of any kind and whole mixing/mastering productions.
