FILMS / GAMES / INSTALLATIONS
I've always found composing and designing sound, foley or voices for films, games and installations exciting and enjoyable. Each collaboration has been an exploration into utterly different but thoroughly convincing worlds. I covet the chance to work with artists and directors on projects on any scale. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need professional and timely service in this area.
