HEAR Now Festival, Kansas City


This weekend I will be at the Hear Now Festival in Kansas City, MO with my friends in Chicago’s Wildclaw Theatre company. I’ll be backing up Foley designer Ele Matelan at the foley table as we present the award-winning short audio drama “Skinny” at the festival’s AUDIO Tonight event on Saturday.

Also at the festival, Wildclaw will be presenting my brother Tim’s short audio drama “Imaginary Fiend,” as recorded at Deathscribe 2015.

Be there or be absent!

Hemingway in 15 seconds

The agency I work for, Ogilvy & Mather Chicago, recently produced three :15 Instagram videos summarizing 3 novels by Ernest Hemingway. The videos were produced in conjunction with the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park, IL.

For this project, I recorded many of the voices. Sound design and mix were done by David Axelbaum of Airstream media.
