I am a sound professional and digital media developer, based in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My work has appeared on Discovery Channel, The Biography Channel, and Oregon Public Broadcasting. I've worked on shoots for Ralph Lauren, Nike, Kaiser Permenente, Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods and many more. I am comfortable working alone, and on small or large crews.
My journey into location sound began as a musician, recording the sounds of the world around me and mixing it into my music recordings. It drew me further away from the isolation of the studio and deeper into the rich soundscapes originating from the environment around me. I got my start as a professional sound engineer, in live sound system engineering for music and events. However, I soon realized, my true love was and is recording in the field, and in particular recording and mixing sound on location for visual media.
I am also a composer, musician, sound artist, and sound designer. I have traveled to various locations around the world to produce aural documents of a wide variety of soundscapes. I have also created an online sound installation: The Columbia River Sound Map, documenting soundscapes along the columbia river.
