PAX East / AT&T eMLS Cup 2018: Sound edit + mix for short doc




Junior Birdman Audio provided post sound for this recent short doc of the first-ever eMLS Cup at PAX East 2018 in Boston, featuring Jimmy Conrad and sponsored by AT&T. The mix had to be lightning quick, including polishing announcer and interview dialog captured in a difficult situation. I created a sound design replete with assorted accents and crowd audio from my personal field recording library, then whipped up a mix and delivered on a tight turnaround.

Promo teaser for "Goblin", a horror feature currently in pre-production. The filmmakers called on Junior Birdman Audio to supply an original score, sound edit and mix for the teaser.



The project allowed me to seamlessly integrate original music and sound design and craft a creepy, unsettling soundscape in the process.

Astrorite: Game Audio For Metroidvania Platformer



Highlight reel of sound effects I created for Astrorite, a platformer by Giorgios Lagoudakis. The creative brief was to assemble a Metroidvania experience, eschewing contemporary aesthetics for a retro approach. In keeping with the throwback aesthetic, all sounds I contributed to the game were created using source audio from a single analog synth.
