I am a violinist, producer, composer and coaches interdisciplinary improvisation.

When not on stage, I enjoy composing soundtracks for films/documentaries and dance shows (working with Zoltan Grecso - Willany Leo, Noemi Kulcsar - Tellabor or ENKNAP). Last but not least, I am a voice artist and singer songwriter. From classical to contemporary music, spoken word, barn rock, bluegrass and pop music, I like to jump from one world to another.
