About Me

I'm a sound designer, composer and musician living in Helsinki, Finland. I'm specialised in immersive and interactive projects: VR and AR experiences, games, installations and live performances where audience shares the feeling of presence and becomes a part of the illusion − or reality if that's the aim.
