Since as early as I can remember I had a stronger relationship with music than my friends. I obsessed over collecting albums and having conversations over what music was good and why. Eventually, this lead me down a path from being in constant conversations about music to being a music creator myself. This journey has led me to all parts of the world and has challenged me throughout the way on what music means to me and what I can do with music. How can I reach people? What is my purpose? What can my impact be? Having these feelings and conversations have led me to game audio.
Music and games are two of my biggest passions and marrying them together to try and enhance both experiences for not only myself, but the general population made so much sense to me. I have fond memories of different game audio experiences. From the sound of changing my weapons in Jak 2 to the humming of the melodies in Child of Light, to my friends playing Fallout 3 so much that I memorized all the jazz tunes from the game. The thought of giving other people that same feeling, enhancing the immersion they have in a game, and giving back to the music and gaming communities that have given me so much to me made so much sense to me.
I do what I do because when I looked at my life and what I wanted it to be this is what I wanted to do. I want to make as much great music, as much great audio, as possible. I wanted to positively impact the world through sound the way so many others have done for me. And that’s why I do what I do.
