For cinematic scores and mood driven film work, Nicolas would be my first choice. Top notch songwriting, production, and engineering skills all wrapped up in a single package. He’s a powerhouse musician.”

Nicolas added a layer of joy to working on the project that would not have been possible without him. His constant care and desire to better the piece is unparalleled, and his attention to detail and willingness to work with the entire production team made the pipeline run all the more smoothly. I couldn't recommend him enough!”
