Sound to Picture
In both sound to picture projects, I stripped the video clip of all sound, and had to rebuild the soundtrack for the clip from the ground up, including ambience, music, and spot effects.
The first example is a clip from Ghost in the Shell. The music in the clip is an original composition by myself, with heavy influence from the video game Oni. The voice acting is my own voice, speaking Japanese and modulated heavily. The original project was in 5.1 surround, but for ease of sharing I mixed it down to stereo.
The second example is a clip from a video game trailer for The Crew. I wanted to focus on a very intense sound effect driven scene, which different from the original which had music over the top of everything.
Husky Game Development
In the Husky Game Development Enterprise, I work with a team of programmers to help design a video game, and then create sound and music for said game. I also work with a specific sound team, where we record various sound effects, and store them in our growing sound effect library. Not only do I create the sounds and music, but I help implement them using middleware software like Wwise.

"Bratsgiving" Commercial Sound
Bratsgiving is a nationwide Facebook commercial that I worked on during my internship at Harvest Creative Services. My job was assistant sound designer, which entailed the initial search for sound effects, building the basic skeleton of the sound design, and helping the sound designer through the entire process. I also was a helper on the shoot of the livestream that follows the initial video.
Arturo Ui Sound Design Sequences
Although I was mainly the composer for Michigan Tech's production of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, I also worked on a few major sound sequence elements. I created the effects, and implemented them into the 22.2 custom surround system provides to us by the systems team on the show. To the left are the biggest, featured in stereo.
To the left is a video I create for a class entitled "Audio Creative Lab". The goal was to create a larger than life composition using unusual field recordings, similar to Diago Staco. I decided to create a drumline, using the various objects from our school's studio storage closet.
