Location:Bloomington, Indiana, United States
2 Skills

I received my BA in Telecommunications with an emphasis in Design and Production while focusing strongly in the area of Audio production and postproduction at Indiana University in December 2011.


I have corporate, commercial, and narrative short form/ long form experience in the following areas of audio production and postproduction:
• Boom operation
• Location recording
• Production mixing
• Dialogue editing and sweetening
• Foley recording and editing
• SFX construction and editing
• ADR recording and dubbing / VO
• Audio restoration [grading and processing]
• Scoring for various media

With my experience and the aid of advanced plugins, I am able to effectively sweeten, clean, or restore raw or dirty audio. With a trusted postproduction hardware and workflow, I am confident in providing pure sound for any production medium.

In both the production and postproduction environment I have a clear and organized strategy to ensure the marriage of best quality sound with efficiency; be it broadcast, short form, or feature-length. I have a strong understanding and skill in both straight-to-camera and sync sound workflows. I have the appropriate equipment for talk-back, which allows for a seamless integration into a variety of location productions.

I can ensure easy, no-hassle audio postproduction strategies that work seamlessly with ANY software environment chosen by picture editorial or other sound post engineers. I am skilled in the area of packaging and handing OMF’s; a great organizational function for post if there are multiple post engineers involved in the project using different software platforms.

I am skilled in the area of custom workstation upgrade, custom configuration, assembly, and maintenance for both video and digital audio workstations. Having configured and assembled by own DAW; I can ensure performance and reliability throughout my workflow.
