I am a sound designer from Cocoa, Florida that has been involved in the live theater world since 2015, starting in middle school. After finding myself behind a sound console junior year of high school, I have been eagerly learning more about sound and its applications, not only in theater, but film, themed entertainment, video games, music, podcasts, and audio dramas as well. 


I find myself drawn to the way that sound can be used to enhance a story, and add a level of impact to anything. Finding ways to induce emotions in audiences with sound is my favorite thing to do, especially with metaphor; With sound being the only non-visual design element, it engages a second sense and further transports the audience into the world of the story. Building this world in collaboration with a team is what makes theater so enjoyable to work on, and what makes it so compelling to watch.
