Sound from A to Z

I focus on Sound Design and want to promote myself as a sound designer. But I do enjoy learning and working on other things as well. I’d like to tell you about how I got to where I am now. This includes all the studies I have done before my current one.

I am: Sound designer, composer, musician, sound engineer, graphic designer, photographer, videographer, animator, editor. My technical and practical knowledge is spread over many different disciplines.
