I’ve been doing sound design since college. I started cutting tape (1/4 inch as well as 16mm mag) back in the day and therefore I’m still amazed at how much I can do in DAWs… and do it fast!!! Reverse reverb now takes 7 keystrokes and 15 seconds. 15 years ago it took a half hour. Amazing.
I worked for 6 years at Soup 2 Nuts, an animation company in Watertown, MA, where I was the lead sound designer, audio editor, music editor, and I also directed and wrote a few bits and pieces of animated content. While there I sound designed the entirety of the “Word Girl” series on PBS (for which I received an Emmy nomination… booyah!), as well as a ton of other pilots, series, web shorts, broadcast commercials, etc. It was a fun gig, but now I’m kickin’ it freelance, which is also fun (though I miss having folks to talk to about Super Mario Kart, politics, and how bad Kevin Smith is as a filmmaker.)
I’m currently working on a reel that gives the full spectrum of my skills, but in the meantime, here’s a good demonstration of my abstract sound design skills:
Additionally, I’ve done sound work for various other projects with a bunch of talented folks at places like Hero 4 Hire, Cloud Kid, and Planet Nutshell. My sound design (and music) can also be heard in the PBS Web platform “Lunchlab”.
I’m also not opposed to taking the odd “for fun” gigs, like this one I did for my buddy Dan early in 2012. It looks awesome and was hella fun to sound design and do the music editing for:
Got a fun project you need sound design for? Drop me a line…
