About

I am a music composer willing to work on films, videogames, and any kind of audiovisual project. I like to tell stories and explore new musical solutions, and I always aim to create something special, a musical world tailored for the images. 

My musical journey started as a electric guitar player, and I still love to use that instrument sometimes, but I also love to write for orchestra, integrate electronic and electro-acoustic sounds, and even absorb influences from world music.

Besides music, my greater passion is Cinema, and I like to consider myself not only as a composer, but also as a film-maker who makes music.
