HYPER LIGHT DRIFTER

HEART MACHINE

Sound Designer

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.

 

CONCRETE GENIE

SONY INTERACTIVE

Sound Designer

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.

 

BRASS TACTICS

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

BUNGIE

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.

 

COIN

DISNEY DIGITAL

Sound Designer

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. 

 

HEAT SIGNATURE

SUSPICIOUS DEVELOPMENTS

Sound Designer

 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.

 

LOST WORDS

SKETCHBOOK GAMES

Sound Design

Wwise Implementation

In order to create the most tactile sounds for this game, centered around a young girl's diary, I recorded myself writing on different weights of paper with a variety of writing implements. Allowing you to feel the flourish of every sound.

One of the exciting challenges for the sound design of this game was recording and directing for a multitude of characters, including the language creation for multiple races of aliens.

 

IRONCLAD TACTICS

ZACHTRONICS INDUSTRIES

Voice Over Director

The grinding of gears and hissing of steam were intrical elements in this Steam Punk card game. In order to create the perfect sound, I record winding watches and various kitchen appliances to help immerse the player.

 

FREEDOM PLANET

GALAXY TRAIL

Sound Designer

Drawing from the specific sound of the16-bit era, I built custom synthesizers to create the familiar twang associated with classic Sega Genesis games.
