I'm a sound designer based in Helsinki.
I create and implement high quality audio content for games and interactive media, with experience ranging from AAA to mobile.
I also expand and work as a team to accommodate larger projects or tight schedules.
If you'd like to enhance your project with a unique and memorable soundtrack, Iet's get in touch!
I was born under a warm sun, next to a blue sea in Turkey, when trash metal was big.
I enjoy soothing noises and organized randomness.
Call me ʤɑn uzɛɾ or simply ‘John’.
Thanks for visiting!
