As some of you may know, I have been working for Telltale Games as a sound designer where my final position was Audio Lead for Minecraft Story Mode. You may also be aware that Telltale had to make some hard choices and proceeded with layoffs. I am saddened and humbled to report that I was one of those laid off. As a result, I am currently seeking an in-house opportunity. Feel free to contact me here or through my Linkedin account with leads and offers. My time at Telltale will be sorely missed. The company afforded me the ability to grow professionally, and the friendships I made will forever be a bright memory. Thank you, Telltale. I wish you the best.

I am excited to announce my YouTube Video Game Music Series!
Over the last couple of months, I’ve uploaded a series of videos of myself playing some of my favorite video game music.

As a child, I played Final Fantasy while I learned to play the piano. Before too long, I took to tapping out Nobuo Uematsu tunes by ear. I then began to compose my own music, and a dream was born.

July was Busy!

Hey everyone! This month has just been crazy! A new game Walz Music provided audio for has been released: Play Gig-It, a a social platform game for Facebook which brings together social media, fashion, music, and gaming by John Romero and 212 Decibels! Walz Music provided the voice-over talent, along with Sound Design and Engineering.

From July 30th to August 1st, I was the educational content adviser and emcee for this year’s Casual Connect’s Audio Track in San Francisco. As in years past, putting on the Audio Tract was a ton of work, but getting to meet so many amazing people in the game audio business, and working along side so many awesome people makes all the hard work totally worth it! In addition to emceeing Casual Connect’s Audio Tract, I also presented Designing Audio for Casino Games along with Greg Rahn – Audio Director for Kabam, Andreas Montano – Game Producer for Double Down Interactive, and Jesse Holt – panel moderator and Audio Designer for Double Down Interactive. As well as moderated Tips for Being a Successful Game Audio Contractor.

So far August is shaping up to be just as crazy and productive as July. Stay tuned for more updates!
