About me

I am an award winning music composer and graphics artist from Hämeenlinna, Finland. I publish electronic music as Retro Thruster and I also run Ace Audio HQ that makes stock music in many different genres for music libraries. I have worked on video games for over 19 years, previously as a graphics artist but now mostly making music and sound effects. I have over 40 published titles under my belt, including several Angry Birds games, and combined the games I’ve worked on have been downloaded several billion times.
