In my compositions I look for a balance between high art and popular culture. To my aesthetics neither of them is more valuable than the other. The synergy of both is what empowers my work.

My works range from symphonic orchestral compositions to electronic productions; often containing a reference to house music.

My main goal as an educator is to get adolescents to play and create music. I am skilled in working with large groups, but also support individuals on their journey to become a skilled musician.

I have developed multiple educational methods to do so, ranging from composition courses for novices to general music lessons for all levels.

Besides conducting my own music I work on project base for other musical groups and ensembles.
