Dear gamedev members!

My name is George and I am a music composer and sound designer.
My story with music is very long, I made first beats when I was 16 (about 12 years ago;) after was a lot o f education - Music University, postgraduate in film music composing, countless workshops with great composers and producers, bands, gigs etc. Until now I've done a lot of soundtracks for animations, films, video and at the moment I would love to expand my field of work and start to write music for games.

I work with highest quality sample libraries and with best musicians creating music almost in any genre you need.
You can find all my works on my website but for faster access I'll give you some direct links:
