About Steve Dobias

Sound designer | USA | Illinois

I’ve worked in a broad range of settings. When I graduated undergrad from U of I in 2004, I exited with a BS in Psychology. I proceeded to work in mental health for the better part of eight years, working my way to become director of social services at a long-term care facility. While on this track, I was also a member of an internationally-touring, award winning band. Eventually my passions of audio and music led me to pursue a career in the creative arts, and went back to school to get my degree in audio engineering.

I’ve been privileged to work with some of the biggest names in entertainment (Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon) and some of the most passionate music and film producers in Chicago. This wide range of experience has helped me foster humility, a team-orientation to work, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the ability to effectively communicate with others in order to reach established goals.
