I know how frustrating it is to not be able to find consistent, paid work in the game industry.

And, unfortunately, most audio designers are told to do things like put "available for work!" in their Twitter bios, or send out countless demo reels and resumes, hoping that these tactics will get them hired. Alas, doing things like this doesn't work at all. 

So, to help, I've created thousands of pieces of free content to make sure my fellow audio designers get to finding high-quality, paid work much faster than before. 

I have two free courses below that help you do exactly that. Signing up for either one will get you instant access to both. No cost, no upsells, no catches. 

Once you implement what's inside, you'll start to see your network, your projects, and your income expand, all without paying a dime.

If you're reading this, odds are you want to work in game audio - and not only that - you want to make sure that you have an insanely high-quality career.

You don't want to deal with low-paying clients who ghost you, work at a company that just lays you off after six months, or want to keep getting turned down for job after job because of a lack of skill or knowledge.

But, most people feel that getting high-paying, high-quality work is impossible. They think you have to be lucky, talented, go to a certain school, or live in a certain city to make it happen. 

Maybe you've already read books, taken online classes, asked for work on social media, and applied to jobs with no results already, so it just feels hopeless. 

Thankfully, within my courses, you'll be given professional guidance on how to make your game audio dreams a reality. Instead of an outdated book or course, you'll have someone who's working in game audio every single day guide you.

In my premium courses, we focus on what I call the GAME method.

G: Grow your skills
A: Attend events and make connections
M: Master your psychology
E: Earn a high income

Each course focuses on different aspects of what you need to succeed in game audio, and you'll need a good grasp of all four of these aspects to get the game audio career of your dreams - whether that be in AAA or Indie.

I've had thousands of students go from $0 to full-time audio from all over the world. Many have increased their income by 10x, worked on top-tier games like Destiny 2, League of Legends, Halo: Infinite, and Minecraft, won massive awards, and are able to support themselves fully through their art.

I believe you can make this a reality, and I'll be there to help.
