About me

Coucou c moi

Who am I?

My name is Edwin Haragova, I’m a designer and developer from France. I’m passionate about a lot of things, especially in art. I’m curious about everything and eager to express myself in different means (music, video games, writing…). 

I am a musician and composer, I’ve played the piano and the bass guitar for many years. I compose mainly soundtracks for my own games but I’m available for any kind of music.

I am also a game designer and indie developer. I have produced my own indie games (with several teams), many free prototypes and one commercial game. I also worked in the field of serious gaming and I am still doing it with freelance work.

I am also a front-end web developer, training to be full-stack dev but still efficient in various web dev areas as I worked on different and interesting projects.
