OUTER WILDS: ECHOES OF THE EYE
Building this DLC's soundscape based off of the Outer Wilds game, all while pushing the audio forward in a new direction was one of my favorite sound design challenges to date.
Echoes of the Eye adds in a new, darker tone that wasn't explored in the original Outer Wilds, and the audio was built to reflect that while still sounding like it belongs in the larger universe of the game.
HYPER LIGHT DRIFTER
Working with the team throughout the entire process allowed me to iterate and perfect the sounds for this game. I created custom recording devices, like my stethoscope record, along with an anime sound design pipeline.
At the Game Developer's Conference it was nominated for 5 awards, including excellence in audio. And was the #1 selling game on Steam globally upon its release.
An exciting challenge for this game was to create organic sounds for the monsters with inflections that would convey human speech.
Concrete Genie won Best Family Game at Gamescom and was nominated for Most Original Game, Best PS4 Game, Best Action Adventure Game.
HIDDEN PATH ENTERTAINMENT
VR Sound Designer
Unreal Engine 4 3D Audio Implementation
I mixed original sound design for this game, creating custom effects to immerse the player, including the use of an electric Kazoo that was transformed into a guttural throng of a war engine.
DESTINY: RISE OF IRON
Orchestral MIDI Mockups
I worked with the composer team at Bungie to refine pre-sampled, synthetic orchestral instruments in order to create an empowering soundtrack that became indistinguishable from a live performance.
Tasked with the challenge of channeling the fun and energy of Saturday morning cartoons and the retro sound of an arcade game, I built my own synthesizers to create the combined energy of both.
Conveying the sound of danger for this serene, yet violent, Space Opera meant staying away from the overused sounds of stereotyped Scifi.
The gritty realism lent itself to Heat Signature becoming the #1 best-seller on Steam upon its release.
