His passion for music developed into the field of electronic music production and nearly ten years ago the Dirty Hippy project was born. Since then he has performed across more than twenty different countries, playing to festival crowds at the likes of Boom Festival (Portugal), Ozora Festival (Hungary), Rainbow Serpent Festival (Australia) and more!



Pet Project

This is the project I started for the purpose of having a place I could without restriction or expectation, compose and produce music, purely for enjoyment. So here you will find a mega merger of all the influences that I have accumilated throughout my life plus original injections of wierdness and experiemental composition. This music could be described as cinematic, otherworldy electronica with lashing of metal, orchestral music and jazzy tones. This is my pet project and hope to do lots with it.
