****

26 yr old male. Born and raised in Perth, Australia.

Moved to Sweden in June to focus on making music.

Had enough of that, on a whim decided to move to Berlin! Hopefully here, I can really get some traction with producing electronic music, read philosophy and psychology, explore the arts, get fit and party.

Check out a mix of mine if you'd like to hear my vibe:

Used to study law/finance and work for a corporation for 3 years. Thoroughly did NOT enjoy this.

In the last 12 months, I've traveled to Japan, Taiwan, Spain, London, NYC, Stockholm.

Previously, I have traveled around much of Europe and S/E Asia.

PHILOSOPHY

Be a gentleman. Learn, create. Respect. Simplicity = elegance.

Appreciate creativity, aesthetics, design and philosophy.
