About

Audio director | Magic Leap | USA | Florida

I’ve spent the last 5 years at Magic Leap helping demonstrate why sound matters when building experiences on our new platform, and dreaming up how it can be leveraged to make each interaction meaningful to our users.

This exploration and discovery has manifested itself in designing and delivering prototypes for the world’s most influential companies and individuals, creating sonic pillars for our brand extending from marketing all the way down to system UI, developing best practices for internal and external developers and communicating those through conferences and workshops, and leading the audio team for one of our launch titles, the 2019 Auggie Award-winning and G.A.N.G. Award-nominated “Project: Create.”

I love making interactive audio content, especially when viewed through the holistic lens of experience design. Sound shouldn’t just “sound” cool to call attention to itself, but when it perfectly complements the look and feel of a mechanic or story beat, it amplifies the intent more than any other element.
