Excited to announce that I will be speaking at Austin Game Conference 2017 on the panel “Audio for VR” with colleagues and associates, and just-plain-awesome-folks Alexander Brandon, Jameson Sutton, and Daniel Perry. Fun fact, I have been on a panel, in the past, with each one of these fabulous men, just never at the same time. So its like a panelist reunion for me!
“Audio plays an important role in immersive experiences, and virtual reality is an amazing way to experience music and sound all around us. Our brain uses audio cues to understand spatial information, especially about what’s not currently in our line-of-site. Hear from a panel of amazing developers as they dive into the practice of immersive audio design!” #gameaudio #vr #ar #vraudio #audiovr #austin https://2017.austingamecon.com/agc17/#session-AudioforVR
Excited to reveal the trailer for one of my latest voice acting adventures with colleague Sean Lenhart!
“Today we are delighted to announce a huge new project from LittleBigAnimation. FABLES REMAKE is a collection of episodes based on the popular comic book Fables. Unlike the Telltale adaptation ‘The Wolf Among Us’, FABLES REMAKE follows the comics directly to bring them to life from the page to the screen with full 3D animation.”

Jon Myers from Earplay mentioned in ARC Applause in “The Future Of Voice Will Be Contextual Conversations And Interactive Experiences” how game design for devices like the Amazon Echo are the future: “…the Earplay skill provides people with interactive story-telling content—a sort of choose-your-own-adventure that echoes the halcyon days of radio dramas. The difference is that the skill allows people to play an active role in a dynamic storyline … just by using your voice.” Earplay created the interactive audio game for Eddy Webb’s “Pugmire”, in which I voiced the chatacter of “One-eyed Molly”, cat spy;) #gameaudio
