BA Jazz @ Leeds College of Music and MA Musicology @ University of Amsterdam graduate specialising in composing music for multimedia (video, apps, ads, etc.).
My musical career began early (age of 5) and until graduating from high-school I played classical music on a piano, violin and french horn.
Afterwards, I finished BA Jazz program at Leeds College of Music, where I fell in love with music production, composition & arrangement: film & game soundtracks, as well as commercials, are my favourites. It is a result of an extensive list of courses I have finished in these fields due to my curriculum in LCM. I also finished MA Musicology program at the University of Amsterdam.
I play keyboard instruments, so apart from abstract multimedia music compositions, I also perform on a piano meaning I record keyboard parts, too. I mainly work with Logic Pro X, although I am familiar with most DAW environments (Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton, etc.). I charge minimal amounts, although musical compositions cost more than recording keyboard tracks.
Check out my audio and video samples of my work, and feel free to contact me, if services I'm offering are of any interest to you.
