I'm a sound designer and audio engineer based in Seattle Washington. For over a decade I have been creating soundtracks for radio, feature films, documentaries and other media. I started out as a musician and somehow ended up getting a BA in ethnomusicology from The Evergreen State College in Olympia Washington. It was there I realized, that from the unearthly shrieks of the Balinese puppeteer to the cries of Orson Welles aliens, sound is most powerful when in league with a good story. Even, and perhaps especially, when taking a backseat to the visuals, I believe sound plays a crucial role in informing the viewer how to feel and think about what they're seeing.
