About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go everywhere, experience everything, waste no time

ABOUT ME

Just left my job in Stockholm to do some more travelling and spend more time making music. Gonna be in New Zealand for a couple of months in March and April, then back in Europe for the summer.

Apart from that: I am a friendly and sociable person, and quite philosophical in nature who also likes a good party. I like meeting new people in new places and generally exploring the limits of experience.

PHILOSOPHY

If you don't like your life, you can change it.

I haven't found my place in life yet, but I don't let it faze me. I'll keep searching and enjoying the search.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Slept under the stars in the deserts of Utah and Arizona.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach lots of things to do with music, especially music production - the art of getting from words and chords to a finished record.

I'd like to learn languages, and the kind of manual skills that I never had the chance to learn because I was brought up in such an academic education system.

Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United States
