I'm an audio enthusiast and sound designer working in the video game industry. My passion for audio stemmed partially from past musical endeavors, but mainly it exists to support my love of games and film. It is that passion paired with my need to produce creative work that has driven me to pursue this amazing career.
For as long as I can remember I've been a listener. It started with music and the realization that my goose bumps could be triggered by something someone else had created. From then on I wanted to be at the source of that feeling. By the time I got to high school and later college, I'd learned that there was more to it all then just music. My listening became more intense; I'd notice the sound of the soda machine as I passed it in the hall, the quiet din of murmurs in the library. All of this has led to my understanding of the level of care and thought involved in creating an immersive (goose bump worthy) world.
I now strive to engage my fellow listeners in a realm of inspired sound design that is as detailed as the world we live in. Feel free to browse some of my past work and contact me with any comments or inquiries.
Thank you for your time and interest,
Joey Van Alten.
