About Sam

I'm a professional sound engineer, podcast producer, sound designer, and musician. With a college English major and a master's degree in sound production, I'm equally comfortable editing scripts and mixing audio.

As a film composer, my work has been featured in the Chicago International Film Festival and Sydney Underground Film Festival, and as a theatre sound designer I've been nominated for a Non-equity Jeff award.  

I'm most interested in editing tape, composing original music, and mixing audio for clarity and style. Let me know how I can make your work sound great!
