Moving to America 2010....

The decision to uproot my life and settle in Baltimore was a daring leap of faith, guided by an unwavering belief in the boundless possibilities that awaited me. As I laid the foundation of my new existence on American soil, a potent blend of excitement and trepidation coursed through my veins, casting an intoxicating spell of anticipation. The unknown loomed before me, tantalizingly teasing with promises of grandeur and fulfillment.

Little did I know that the symphony of fate had orchestrated a tapestry far more extraordinary than my wildest imaginings. Though Maryland became my home for a decade, its essence seemed to recognize that my talents were destined to transcend the boundaries of state lines, resonating with audiences worldwide.

Like a sonic emissary, I embarked on a cosmic odyssey, weaving my magic across continents and enchanting audiences with the alchemy of sound. The names that graced my roster read like a litany of electronic music royalty - Avicii, the luminary whose euphoric melodies ignited souls and set hearts ablaze, and Alesso, the virtuoso who painted vibrant tapestries of sonic ecstasy. To stand amidst the swirling vortex of their electrifying performances, conducting a symphony of sonic perfection, was a testament to the heights my artistry had reached.

But my journey was an ever-evolving melody, shifting harmonies that led me to embrace a new realm of sonic exploration. In 2014, the celestial strands of destiny intertwined, uniting me with the legendary New Zealand band Crowded House. The air crackled with anticipation as I stepped into the realm of live musicians, venturing beyond electronic beats. The sheer artistry of their melodies was a revelation, and I felt humbled to be entrusted with channeling their ethereal sound, transcending borders, and bridging cultures as we embarked on a global sonic odyssey.

My path was not without its trials, for the life of a globetrotting sound engineer demanded sacrifices. The constant whirlwind of travel and the heart-wrenching distance from home tested the very core of my being. Yet, with every adversity encountered, I grew stronger, honing my skills and expanding my understanding of the intricate web that interconnects the music industry.

As I look back upon those transformative years, an effervescent sense of pride and gratitude permeates me. The countless hours spent on stages bathed in pulsating lights and the countless miles traversed in pursuit of sonic excellence coalesced to forge the foundation of my career and shape the essence of my very being. Each experience became a brushstroke upon the canvas of my life, painting a portrait of resilience, artistic prowess, and unwavering devotion to the craft that defines me.

The decision to embrace Baltimore as my home became an emblem of daring, a symbol of the unyielding spirit that propels me to push the boundaries of possibility. It was a chapter of my life brimming with audacity and exultation, a vivid testament to the resplendent rewards that await those willing to surrender to the symphony of life's grand orchestrations.
