15+ years of experience in the field of Sound. I specialize in UI Sound Design and Audio Implementation. I work with designers and developers to help create the best audio experience of your users. Most recent clients include Talko, and Beatfarm.
Sound Design is so much a part of our lives. Its everywhere, almost every connected device has a voice. Its important that you approach how your product sounds in a thoughtful way. By talking the entire user experience in account we can better understand what needs to make sound and what doesn't. How will your product be used? Where will it be used? On which devices/platforms? These questions can help us navigate the world of UI sound and help to create a product that sounds as good as it looks. I am passionate about audio and I approach it with imagination and wonder, while still considering the realities of hardware and audio API limitations. Please feel free to be in touch and we can talk about all the possibilities!
Talko is a novel communications app that's focused on voice. Early in the development process it became apparent that the app's sound design would be critical in helping the user to understand what state they were in: Mic state; call state; playback state; online state; etc. That's when, upon a personal recommendation from a great designer, we hired Charlie.
Charlie did truly a fantastic job at internalizing the requirements. He used the app to viscerally understand it; he interviewed the devs; he read the specs; he worked closely and really effectively with the lead interface designer. When his sounds worked first time, the team was amazed. When some needed refinement, he took an active interest in understanding why, and he iterated quickly.
He was also great to work with and was very budget-conscious.
Net-net, we're elated with the results, and we couldn't have been happier with the process. If we have further sound design need as we move forward, Charlie will be the first one we'll call. Highly recommended.
I've collaborated with Charlie on a few design projects. He's great to work with - he brings a lot of creativity to the table and is open to new ideas. Charlie is a great team player, very professional and lot's of fun.
As a musician with years of experience, I highly recommend Charlie as he is one of the most ground-breaking producers in Toronto. His knowledge of both analog and digital world makes him extremely dangerous in the studio environment. A very good songwriter in his own right and very open minded in terms of direction, Charlie is highly skilled for everything from acoustic music, to electronic and innovative sound effects.
