My name is Pax, and audio is my thing.
I'm a Sound Designer based out of Chicago, IL – and I'm passionate about creating immersive audio experiences for games. I received my B.A. in Audio for Visual Media from Columbia College Chicago in 2015. Since then, I've worked in music, film, and advertising – but sound for video games is my primary interest.
Audio has been a lifelong journey for me. From a young age I became involved with music. I started with piano, sang in choir throughout school, and later picked up the guitar. In high school I played in Jazz Band on bass guitar and upright bass.
Music is where I was first introduced to the studio environment. Playing in several bands of different genres (ska, punk, jazz, metal,) I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time in the recording studio. The recording process was inspiring to me. Eventually, I decided to set up a modest home studio of my own to record demos for the bands I was in and other local artists.
I later transitioned to audio post production, and then sound for interactive media and video games. I'm passionate about both the creative and technical sides of sound design for games, finding solutions to make interactive experiences more even more immersive.
