I am a freelance composer, sound designer, and audio engineer currently based out of the United States. I also sometimes write for enjoyment and often find myself day dreaming of being a space pilot in the 25th century. I have a masters in Sound Design from The University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and I have taught sound and music at two universities in North Carolina.
I have several side projects in which I also partake, so click on some of the links at the top to check them out and see if it suits you.
I came to California to chase a writing dream because my other dreams failed miserably. For example. When I was young, I wanted dearly to be a dinosaur tamer... still bummed that didn't work out. So now I mostly just stick to audio, music and writing. Sorry.
What Clients Are Saying...
Paper Lantern Theatre Company has been fortunate enough to work with Jon on several productions over the last few seasons. Jon always brings something new to the table, conceptually and technically he pushes the boundaries, all the while respecting the overall vision of the show. His contribution to the story becomes critical because he always manages to find new, innovative and wonderfully effective ways to help tell it through his designs. Match this talent with his impeccable professionalism and it is easy to understand why he is the first Sound Designer we call at the start of every season. -Amy da Luz, Artistic Director @ Paper Lantern Theatre Company
Jon wasn't the last person I thought of when I needed audio work for my latest project, he was the first. Every asset was well planned, and the final product was the result of Jon's collaborative feedback process. In the end, I didn't get anything close to what I expected, I got a boatload more. -Chris Dunst, Senior Director @ The Office of Online Learning, UNCG
Working with you over the past two years has been such a pleasure. You are talented, fun to be with and super-knowledgeable in your craft. We will miss you... Come back any time! Thanks for everything! -John Bowhers, Producing Director @ Peppercorn Children's Theatre
