I started composing when I was 17. During my studies at the conservatory, I attended composition lessons from Henk Alkema. Since, I kept on writing music since then for various ensembles (classical & jazz/world) and for movie productions.

While composing & playing I become fascinated by the fusion of different styles of music and cultures. I compose, arrange and play both classical and modern (jazz, world, pop-rock) music with equal enthusiasm and devotion.
