Who I am...

Projects and Collaborations

At Thinkwell, I've designed in various capacities for projects across the globe. I've created and field-mixed the sound design for an eight-scene interactive dark ride as part of an indoor theme park in Macau. I designed the audio systems for a 1.5-million square foot theme park in Abu Dhabi, an interactive botannically-themed park in California, and a mall space in Harbin in the Heilongjiang province of China.

As a freelance sound designer and sound design student, I've designed over 20 theatrical productions in the Greater Los Angeles are and in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I've also designed and mixed numerous film/commercial projects, both professionaly and in an educational setting.

Please see my Portfolio page for more details on my projects in Theater, Film and Music.

Background and Early Training

Born just outside Washington, DC in Bethesda, MD, I spent my middle- and high-school years performing in many musical theater and opera productions. During this time, I gained a lot of fundamental experience with musical performance and the theatrical process. On the side, I began experimenting with sound design when I got involved with a high school friend's amateur films. This curiosity led to my application and ultimate acceptance to the University of Michigan Performance Arts Technology program.
