I was 7 y.o. when I tried to build my first musical instrument. At 12 y.o. I joined some friends in a garage band as a drummer, it was an awesome time. During that time I learned to play guitar, bass and later piano /synths. Then everything changed. I created my own studio and turned to orchestral and electronic music, much inspired by Vangelis. That's it.
