Wow, what can I say? A two for one! I am so elated. I have been patiently waiting to have recognition from Kinda Funny in some capacity for a few years now. More importantly, it has been a dream of mine to be a part of some E3 showcase since I started working in the industry. Now, Aground will be included.
A new interview has surfaced about me by the indie game news publisher Cliqust. The journalist, Alyssa Wejebe, asked some very great and different questions, which I always appreciate. She did her homework about me and I truly respect that. If you have been following my career, you’ll know that I divulge a little more about myself and journey into game audio every time.
Here is the full interview
I am very elated to announce that I will be a panelist with Rachel Presser from Sonic Toad Media and Amanda Kirk, Coordinator of RPI’s digital game hub. Our Panel is called “Your Guide to Games – Adjacent and Alternative Game Careers”.
We will discuss the shortcomings of business development in video game programs, our experiences with doing other jobs to work in the industry as independents, some advice on how to sustain and the reality of getting a job at a studio.
I am pleased to be speaking at ECGC as this will be my first time speaking here and attending. This will be fifth public speaking debut.
