After all these years, the song I created along with Nassim Ait-Kaci for Tony Hawk Project 8 is finally available on iTunes.
The soundtrack to Fallout: New Vegas was recently released on iTunes. It was a real honor to be a part of this soundtrack and I’m happy to see it finally out there!
This may be old news for some people, but I am officially announcing that I left my position as the Audio Director for Obsidian Entertainment last month. The last four years have been an incredible experience and I have loved working on such large and ambitious titles. Most importantly, I will remember all of the very talented people I was fortunate enough to work with. I especially want to take a moment to thank all of the extremely talented Sound and Dialog Designers I worked with over the years; Andrew Dearing, Mikey Dowling, Justin Bell, Austin Shannon, Adam Swanson, Jonathan Pendergrass, Fryda Wolff and Alexander Brandon. I am honored to have worked alongside all of you and I am very happy for all we were able to accomplish and learn together.
Of course this means I am off on new adventures of my own! The new project and company I am working for is veiled in secrecy. That means for the near future the focus of this blog will be moving away from my professional experiences and will start to focus more on my fascination with all aspects of Sound Design, Recording and Music. Please keep checking back to see what new directions will come!
Off I go down a new (snowy) path…see you all soon!

It was one hell of a week! This, my fourth GDC in as many years, was easily the most eventful and fulfilling I’ve had.
After a quick flight from LAX to SFO, things got off to a quick start with a tour of Skywalker Ranch. It has been a few years since coming here for the music recording of Tiberium and the room was equally as impressive as I remember it. The first time I was here, I sat in this room listening to one of the world’s premiere orchestras. The sound of the room and the players was an overwhelming experience, and one that I will never forget. It was good to be back!
This was my introduction to GDC2012.

CNN has posted a very interesting piece about the earliest known audio recording.
“His machine would capture the vibrations out of the air and write them on to a moving piece of paper,” said David Giovannoni, one of the founders of First Sounds. “When you look at the writing that this machine made, it looks exactly like a sound wave would look on audio editing software today.”
