A multi-disciplinary designer’s journey in field recording, sound design, and music.


I’m Nathan, and Noise Jockey profiles my adventures in sound: Music, field recording, sound design, and modular synthesis.

I’m a multidisciplinary designer and artist in the San Francisco Bay Area. I shun specialties in favor of being an “expert generalist.” My educational and work background spans video editing, visual effects, illustration, interaction design, broadcast motion design, videography, photography, music, and sound design. When not actively creating sound or music, I’m directing the design of interactive installations, hiking, backpacking, sea kayaking, cycling, and studying film and art history. I also happen to be a co-founder of Sonic Terrain.

A good overview is available in a recent interview with A Sound Effect.
