I am a self-taught video game composer, film scorer and sound designer from Norway,

best known for my work in games like "Castle Crashers", "Castle Storm", "Roblox" and "Geometry Dash."

My love for creating music began in 2002 at age 13, and I have not stopped making things since then.

Between commissions for composition, sound effects and sound design,

I have released 25 albums over the last 20 years and hundreds of individual tracks.
