This is a trailer for the game Spec Ops: The Line in which I replaced all of the original sound. All sound editing, foley, mixing and score was performed by myself. Originally mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, visuals were generously provided by Tronic Studios.

This is my latest Interactive Music Project within Wwise. I've created music for a Medieval RPG game which offers more complexity and variety than my first project. It is best viewed in HD via Vimeo if you are watching fullscreen.

This was one of my entries into Audiokenetic's Limbo Wwise Redux Contest, which I was a finalist in. The goal was to recreate Limbo's soundscape by replacing the sounds within the Wwise sound engine. My idea for this was to try a quieter approach than was present in the original game. There are light, ambient crackles present in the beginning and then I added sound to the ominous swinging light which wasn't there before. A tense, menacing buildup gives release when the boy is out of danger.

This was another entry into the contest. With both of these I wanted to focus on a distinctly different overall design concept, creating a world with lots of cracks and pops, sort of as though the game were being played through a turntable. These sounds intensify as the danger builds.

In this project, I have taken the individual stems from a song I wrote called "Entering and Leaving the Desert" and divided it into sections for a fictional action/adventure game. Most of the music is created and arranged in Ableton, with some help by Pro Tools and Reason. The below video shows how it was organized into Wwise (once again, best viewed in HD via Vimeo if fullscreen).

The Gaygency is a satirical, LGBT themed take on spy movies where I was hired as both sound designer and composer. A lot of work went into editing the dialogue to make sure that the cuts between the two locations flowed nicely. For the score, I wanted to convey a sense of manic urgency, drawing inspiration from Jon Brion's soundtrack for Punch Drunk Love mixed with a bit of JFK.

In the film Panmonjum I worked as Sound Designer, providing all the post production and mixing it in 5.1. I also composed a score for the film, part of which is featured here.

Footsteps Into Gangland is a feature length film that follows the choices and influences faced by youth in the South Asian community of Vancouver's Lower Mainland. I worked as sound editor and sound mixer on the film, providing a 5.1 mix. The director Mani Amar discusses the audio post production journey we went through here.

Here's a clip from the reality show I was sound editor on for 8 episodes, Restless Josie.
