I’m currently working at Rovio as Senior Sound Designer and “Craft Lead” in sound design in an audio team of six. I act as lead audio designer in flagship projects, and support others in various roles. My tasks include a wide spectrum, from content creation to implementation and programming, to audio direction, supervising, project management, mentoring, and everything in between.
Since 2014 I’ve filled the roles of sound designer, technical sound designer, lead sound designer, music supervisor and more, and worked on numerous projects in various scales and forms. As a result, I’ve gathered XP in many genres (cartoon, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, shooter, strategy, content for kids, casual, sports, multi-player, etc.) and many platforms (mobile, console, PC, VR, location-based) with many different tools (Wwise, FMOD, ProTools, REAPER, Logic, Audition, Pure Data, Unity, Unreal, C#, etc.).
Below are some examples of my work. For more info on my background, check out my about page.
