Sound Designer (Contract) at Microsoft
Motion Pictures and Film | Greater Seattle Area, US
I record, edit, design and mix sound for linear, game, and live performance works. Having cut my teeth in the frenetic world of theatrical sound design and live audio engineering gives me a knack for navigating diverse, fast-paced, and uncharted environments.
I'm highly skilled in Pro Tools, NI Komplete, field recording, non-linear playback solutions, and mixing consoles including the Control 24 and ICON D-Control ES systems. My background in stage direction and voice acting also gives me unique insight into working with talent and production, seeing the entire story, and managing project responsibilities. I've got one eye on the meters and one eye on the narrative.
