A theoretical physicist, musician and martial artist constantly aiming at a better understanding of Nature, technological sustainability and personal improvement through practice.
After obtaining a PhD on supergravity and dark matter, I now perform research towards a more efficient and sustainable usage of natural resources.
Over 25 years of experience in playing electric guitar and electric bass in a variety of genres, though I feel closer to progressive rock and fusion.
Martial artist since 1999, I hold a black belt (I Dan) in Karate and I am currently practicing Kung Fu (Tai Chi Ch’uan and Shaolin Ch’uan).
Oriental philosophies (mostly Taoism and Buddhism) have shaped my behaviour and attitude towards life. Whether I am doing research, physical training, or playing diverse music genres, I adapt to the environment, still maintaining my own style: “You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or can crash. Be water, my friend.” (Bruce Lee)
For collaboration, studio recordings, guitar/bass lessons (Helsinki area/remote), and live bookings:
