Here you can find a few projects I’m currently involved with, in one way or another.

Mongol Rally

In 2015 I completed the Mongol Rally, driving over 12.000 miles, across 21 countries, over 2 months, for charity. It was one of the most amazing adventures I experienced so far, and hopefully, the start of something incredible! I’m still going over all the pictures and working on what will soon be a great series of posts on Medium. Follow the details on Facebook and our page,

I seldom blog about performance and related subjects @ If you have a technical question or something that might interest other people too, share the love and post a comment! There’s even a section called Ask Me Anything!.


I love electronic music. Time is lacking, but whenever possible, I try to record something new and fresh at my home studio. If it’s not complete rubbish, it goes to SoundCloud.
