I am a music producer based in Bucharest, Romania, and I have been doing audio work for about ten years now.
While I am mainly known for my work with rock and metal bands, I have recorded almost any kind of music from folk to electronic, from classical music to drone or even Balinese ensembles.
I am a massive music listener and I can handle and understand the subtleties of any project, no matter the complexity or its nonconformity.
I am a completely self taught sound engineer so I don’t have a specific set of rules that I apply to everyone, disregarding the aesthetics or the concept of the music that I’m working on.
I have worked on hundreds of projects and I treat every one of them differently and always try to make the best possible of the tools and music available at the moment while keeping an open mind.

Sometimes you can find me playing live as part of the experimental / ambient trio Environments.
