From childhood I love electronic music. Now I listen to vast various kind of music style. Because of this I can manage and design the cover for albums and the various artist CDs for commercial usage or special aids. Also I worked with some artistic groups in case of music making and music video. After my visit from India on 2005 I try to spend more time for DJs experiences and learn more technical things about music softwares. The music is not just fun for me these days, it is like a food, enter from ears and make energy in my brain and body. My favorite musician is "Klaus Schulze".
