- Audio Direction
Since 2007 I’ve created audio experiences with industry juggernauts including LucasArts, Epic, Playful, Electronic Arts, Activision, Naughty Dog, Starbreeze, Raven and notable mobile gaming developers. During my career I have been fortunate enough to have contributed my skills to a few video games that have won audio awards including Uncharted 3 and The Force Unleashed 2.
I’ve also crafted experiences in VR with titles such as Lucky’s Tale for Oculus, Robo Recall for Oculus and multiple projects for Starbreeze using their next-gen StarVR headset. In 2018 I shared my VR knowledge by giving my 5D Audio presentation at GDC.
Along with my career I also feel a strong need to give back and build a better community. To accomplish this I taught a Wwise course at Berklee, currently run the Austin Game Audio Meetup, host gatherings at Mosaic Sound Collective and am on the AES Central Texas Board.

I presented my six months of research on auditory systems and neural studies and how to apply them to control the player experience in VR.
For two years I taught many talented Berklee students the power of Wwise. This course covered the basics of implementation for sound, voice and music. It also went above and beyond teaching students the skills in how to use these skills to push a narrative, dig deeper into their skill sets, and craft a more compelling game experience.
