    I’m very proud to have lead my team at Formosa Group – Interactive in the end-to-end audio production for Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Formosa was brought onboard quite late in the production cycle and was faced with the challenge of providing a significantly improved and updated audio experience for the sequel of […]

  • State of Decay 2

    I was very happy to be able to work with one of my favorite teams, Undead Labs, on the their much-anticipated sequel: State of Decay 2. It was like getting the band back together again working with Kevin and Jordan. Tension Studios provided audio system design and content for the core firearms and vehicles in […]

  • Tiny Bubbles

    I had the distinct pleasure of working with Pine Street Codeworks to help bring this enchanting puzzle game to life! For this project I was essentially the “audio guy” handling nearly every aspect of the audio experience: Audio Director, Composer, Sound Designer, Implementer. I worked directly with Stuart Denman, the principal Engineer/Artist/Designer to really hone […]

  • Halo: Spartan Assault

    This was my first game as Sound Supervisor at Microsoft!  My Audio Director was Paul Lipson and we worked with Ramon Kerstens, the Audio Lead at Vanguard Games.  We had a challenge set before us because even though this was a comparatively casual game, it was still Halo and needed to live up to a […]

  • State of Decay

    Here was another great opportunity to work with Kevin Patzelt who is the Audio Director at Undead Labs, and a former employee of mine.  Kevin needed a core set of firearm sounds that would be used as the foundation for further tweaking to create the impressive arsenal found in State of Decay.  Kevin wanted us […]

    I was fortunate enough to participate in the large team effort to ship Halo 4! Near the end of the project everyone was chipping in and I helped out with some random sound design. This video is a collection of game captures that I would use as reference when designing the individual game assets for […]

  • Fable: The Journey – video demos

    Here’s a collection of videos with some of my work. These are very low quality video taken from a developer build with debug text and other ugliness, and the mix is specifically sound effects heavy for demonstration purposes only. What these videos highlight is the “corruption” system that I built which was all driven from […]
