Sound Designer and Music Composer
Who Am I

I’m a sound designer and music composer from South Africa, and my passions are music making, and teach others how to make music.

My Experience

I’ve been working in new media such as music and sound for TV and online games for the last 15 years. In these years I’ve worked through a multitude of different audio software, and through this found a passion for teaching how to use the different type of audio software that is available on the market. 

What I Teach

I’m a firm believer that audio software has its place in the creative field and using them as tools you can get different results which you might not have ever imagined. I wish to show you how to get the most out of these audio applications so that you can produce and expand on your musical ideas.
