First Person Blog

I’m going to stop pretending this site is run by someone else and I’ll start writing this in first person. Sorry.

The “News” section of this website, while it is a bit obsolete since one can simply follow me either on Twitter or Instagram for all the breaking life-hacks, is a nice way to collate some of the “big” stuff that goes on from time to time. I guess that’s enough validation, for now.

Since I last updated this, my family up and moved to Nashville. That was in October 2018. Since then, I helped ship Dance Central (I was audio lead) as a launch title for the Oculus Quest, after which I made the big move-on from Harmonix Music Systems as a full or part time commitment (I had been part time since January 2019).

So, for the last month or so, I’ve been fully independent working through the company I co-founded, SkewSound. It’s great to be fully committed alongside by Skew-brothers Dan, Chris, and Nick. They are all very handsome and are actually (surprisingly) a joy to work with. We also re-designed the logo so it’s a little less embarrassing when folks stumble upon us. But, yeah, this last month, June, was the first time that all I did was make music for various projects. Nuts.

Wrapped up my full-time Harmonix stint with Dance Central for Oculus Rift/Quest.

Also, starting last January, I up and started a game audio class at Belmont University here in Nashville. It was kind of perfect timing: they were looking for someone who actually knew some game audio in order to build a curriculum and, well, teach it, and I needed an excuse to move to Nashville. Perfect.

Oh, and my brother Jonathan and I are also making SAXOPHONE. You probably have already heard about this. Sorry. It’ll be out soon, we hope.
