About me

25+ Years of music creation

I’ve been joyfully immersed in the world of music since the days of my childhood while growing up surrounded by music, through the time of studying music, composing, playing piano in a big band and working in various roles such as a music producer, arranger, presenter or artistic director.

I am passionate about the transformative power of music and look forward to collaborating on new projects to continue exploring its endless possibilities.
