Media Producer

I run a media production business where I provide services in video and audio production. I'm also a YouTuber releasing mainly music production content. I also release music on both YouTube and SoundCloud.

In my early teens I played keyboards in a band and later studied audio production where I got the opportunity to train in an analog studio.

I also studied digital design and e-business and have worked in the online marketing field.

It is my pleasure teaching others new skills and sharing my knowledge. 

I always try to provide value in what I do.
