Johnny in a few words

As a highly skilled and versatile music and sound practitioner, I possess a passion for film, music, games, books, podcasts, and audio media, with 10 years experience in the entertainment industry.

I bring technical proficiency and creative flairto my work. My extensive background in audio design and music production has enabled me to develop a deep understanding of the technical and creative aspects of sound production. With extensive proficiency in Logic Pro and skills in industry-standard software such as FMOD, Wwise, Premiere Pro, and more, I navigate all stages of audio production with ease.

Whether it be for my branding work for clients within the fashion and advertising industries, or my creative work in the film and music industries, I excel at creating captivating and unique audio experiences that resonate with audiences.
