About James Powell

Sound designer | Vio Audio | USA | California

I enjoy collaborating closely with storytellers, game developers, and artists to create compelling virtual experiences with immersive audio and powerful narratives. My work is influenced by travels to 62 countries, and an ethos close to my core to explore the diversity that we all offer. Recently, my sound design was featured in Upstander, a 360 film premiered at Tribeca Immersive and Cannes XR in the Museum of Other Realities.

I have 10+ years of experience in professional audio production and have a comprehensive understanding of design and implementation tools used for creating immersive and interactive audio for XR applications, 360 films, and video games. I’m also well acquainted with Unity and Unreal, and have created games & immersive experiences with C#, C++, and blueprints for a variety of mediums (VR headsets / PC / mobile).
