I am a freelance sound editor, re-recording mixer, sound designer, and audio engineer from San Francisco, California. I have extensive sound experience in film, broadcast, online media, video games, and music.

Me

Sound is amazing. You don’t notice it unless it’s missing or if something just doesn’t “sound” right. What many people don’t realize is that the sounds you hear in movies are actually added months after the filming is done! That’s right, a lot of the sounds recorded on set are thrown away. All the footsteps, door slams, body falls, car crashes, grenade blasts… yes, there’s an art to putting all these sounds back together. This is where I come in. I obsess over finding the “right” sound. I hope I can help you with your project and shape the soundtrack in a way that tells your story.

Star Wars Rebels: A Look Ahead Trailer

In the midst of working on the actual season for this show, I was able to cut sound FX and mix this trailer that premiered at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con! The biggest challenge I faced was balancing the sound FX against the intense music since the music was so important in carrying the energy throughout the trailer. I didn’t want to take away the adrenaline of the music, but I also wanted to feature the sound FX loud and clear. In the end, I think we got a good balance between dialogue, music, and sound FX – I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Star Wars Battlefront | Official Trailer | E3 2014

I had the amazing opportunity to cut sound FX for the very last speederbike sequence of this trailer! This almost has 3 MILLION views on YouTube! Speederbikes are extremely fun to cut together, especially when there are lasers and explosions going off in the background; you certainly want to make sure they cut through since they have such an amazing tonal sound to them. Enjoy the ride!
