As a Programmer/Researcher
With experience in Spatial Audio and Human-Computer Interaction research and machine learning, I work to develop different models of ways to enhance listening experiences in video games and other interactive media. I have extensive experience with research projects and programming projects in Python, C++, C, C#, and R. I leverage these languages and the paradigms that go with them to experiment and see how I can better audio technology and digital audio HCIs from the perspective of an audio designer and computer engineer.
As an Engineer
I have extensive experience in live performance and digital media. Having worked in various studios and having one of my own, I am able to meet the different audio recording and production requirements of my clients. I have been audio engineering for video games within the Unreal Engine and Unity3D using Wwise and FMOD. I am able to both program the engine implementations in C++ and the audio implementations in the necessary scripting languages. Utilizing both Computer Science and Audio Engineering backgrounds, I cover a significant area of expertise related to video game audio and digital media
As a Designer
I have been designing audio since middle school and haven't let up since. From designing for theatre to video games to broadcast media, I have covered the bases to ensure I can be effective in any medium I design for. Specializing in non-linear audio designs and digital production, I am able to effectively build a listening experiences for different genres and worlds. I love to tell stories and my designs reflect that. Every story has something to hear and everything heard has a story.
