AUDIO ENGINEER

 

I have over 12 years of professional experience in audio engineering and production, including as FOH engineer and sound designer for national and international music festivals and multimedia venues. My “unofficial career” in audio started in high school with a single radio show episode exclusively edited in Cool Edit ProI have since served as an audio engineer in multiple institutions, including as a graduate fellow and staff technician at the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia (CEMI) from 2013 to 2017, helping produce hundreds of multimedia concerts, talks, and events. I have taught music composition and audio technology since 2012. My audio courses cover a wide gamut of topics ranging from audio fundamentals to advanced sound synthesis and interactive video game music. Currently, I work as audio reinforcement technical director at the University of North Texas’ College of Music, which is the largest public music school in the United States, typically presenting over 1200 music recitals and recorded concert events per year.
