LA, Malibu, Adobe Max 2014, IndieCade 2014, EngadgetLive 2014, AES 2014, GameSoundCon 2014, EastWest Studios, Adventures!


Sorry for the lack of updates this year, it’s been an incredible journey as the next chapters in my career and life develop. So many wonderful new people I’m meeting and exciting opportunities. I’m feeling a sense of changing the world in a good way all over again. Everything up to now feels like practice for what is ahead. I’ve worked on a few dozen product releases this year in the audio industry, and I’ve been blessed with a ton of amazing new meetings and talented people and companies wanting to work with me on the next exciting steps into the future! This is sort of a mish-mash random blog entry with just random photos from different things.


I started working with an amazing Hungarian pop star singer songwriter on an incredibly cool EP. We recorded up in Bel Air for a few weeks.


The scenery behind us. :)


Inspirational writing tree.


LA adventures.


A writing session with Ameria.


We setup a make-shift writing studio on top of the only Hungarian restaurant on Sunset Blvd. We were kinda moving the writing sessions all over town.


Overlooking the edge of 20 million dollar home. :)


On top of all the LA adventures, I actually went to 4 trade shows and conferences all in one week! This is my good friend Michael Csurics, one of the most respected audio directors in the game industry, and he asked me to engineer his talk at GameSoundCon 2014!


Our captive audience of game industry audio people.


the myth, the man, the legend, directing audience members to read dialogue, as we recorded it live in Pro Tools on the screen behind us.


Action part? :)


Meanwhile, at Adobe MAX 2014, I met up with Jerry at Intel, which is the start of some amazing new projects together. Amazing man!


Peter from Intel, talking about next gen HSW-E stuff with me and they showed me some cool new technology at the show and Iris Pro graphics!


People checking out the new goodness.


Hanging out with Raj from Intel at AES 2014 near the stage demos. We were dreaming up awesome future projects on this day. Seriously one of the coolest people I’ve met. Has the soul and vision and support for us Audio and music guys!


Long time buds and working partners. I have learned so much from working with iZotope over the years on their various products. This is Mark Ethier the CEO, we get to see each other every once in a while at tradeshows like this. It was so cool catching up. I was hired to do stuff for Iris 2, which has been released by now. :)


This is Sean, the new AR at iZotope, super rad connecting with him at the show!!


One thing I love about tradeshows is the chance to meet new people too. This is Thor Legvold, a mastering engineer, whom I plan to work with on some projects. He came all the way from Europe and has a cool name to boot! :)


One of the most exciting things at AES 2014 this year was actually from PreSonus. StudioLive AI, a touch-screen mixing console. This one is running on a Lenovo Horizon AIO device from Intel.


A fellow sound designer friend from Europe. This is Nikola Nikita Jeremic, we were originally introduced by Doyle W. Donehoo (Warhammer, etc.)


Playing piano at EastWest Studios for the big AES get together we planned. It was so cool catching up with everyone and meeting so many wonderful people.


Testing out microphones with Ameria. Bock Microphones.


Rocking some a cappella.


Take that game of thrones. This is the EastWest Throne.


the cool neo hallways of EastWest with Ameria.


The ceiling performers at EastWest during the party. Very sci-fi futuristic circus feeling.


I brought Duy and Tudor from Control VR up to Intel to demo their technology in Santa Clara. I also started doing strategy stuff with Control VR, so stay tuned for more stuff about that.


Two of my best friends. Samara and Zach. Thank you for all that you do for me. I am lucky to have you in my life.


People checking our Control VR at EngadgetLive!


A fun selfie of me and Duy Tran from Control VR that Engadget re-tweeted to the whole world!


My friend Alex’s mom at EngadgetLive checking out the show.


Me doing some fun duties for Control VR at IndieCade 2014 this year. Seriously love these guys!


Randomly ran into Alex Ball (composer/violinist) for video games and other media at IndieCade 2014. It was actually pretty cool to meet tons of people there.


My long time friend from France, Luc Bernard’s new game Desert Ashes, at the PlayStation booth at IndieCade 2014. I had to show some support!


Hanging out with my friend Tudor in Malibu.


At some creepy gangster location in Malibu.


Pretty Malibu land.

I hope to update my blog a little more often in the new year!
