Aspiring to be involved in creating a wider variety of music, I decided to leave my former company to become a freelance composer. The growing scale of my work gave me a vision of a new type of organisation, where professional creators and specialists could come together striving for content creation. With this in mind, I established MONACA Ltd. in October 2004.
As a relatively small organisation, MONACA focuses on in its agility and adaptability, while also striving to deliver a vast range of content. Interactions with talented artists and creators are treated as a once in a lifetime opportunity, working closely with each and every one to create something truly invaluable together.
I believe that building these mutually trusting partnerships is essential to our philosophy, cultivating relationships between our customers (companies), creators (partners), and staff (employees), in hopes of creating excitement and joy for as many people as possible while being committed to providing exceptional service every step of the way.
