DIALOGUE EDITOR AT KING SOUNDWORKS

2021-present

Sound Editor at Gypsy Sound

Dialogue and Sound Effects Editor at Gypsy Sound - 2018-present

  • Dialogue Editor - For projects from scripted features to documentaries, choose-your-own-adventures, and an  animation series, I use tools like Izotope RX6 through 9 to bring the fullest clarity possible to the dialogue. Removing unwanted distractions within the spectrogram is my happy place. It's like reverse painting with sound!

  • Sound Effects Editor -  Hard effects are my favorite when editing sound effects. I love fooling my own ears. When you can convince even yourself that a sound effect you edited is the actual sound of something onscreen. Magic. Sound design is wonderful too though. Getting to set the mood and really be deep in the story telling process. I've done projects from shorts to feature length or series shows. Scripted and documentary and animation.
