About Catalyst Berlin IT Administrator & Music Tech Sol John-Addey

Sol John-Addey

IT system administrator & music tech

“The most important part of my role is keeping the ones and zeros moving along the arteries of our school.” Our IT system administrator may have been raised on Brighton’s beaches, but he is most at home riding the wave of technology. Since 2017, Sol has taken care of Catalyst’s network, computer hardware and software, and online systems, as well as being a cherished member of our music tech team. 

When he’s not busy finding tech solutions for our community, Sol is “scoring highlight-reel-worthy goals by Sonnenallee, running around Tempelhof, or noodling on a Nord Lead.” The latter is an analog synthesizer, in case you were wondering. What brings Sol the most satisfaction in life? “A good night’s sleep (which I never get)!”
