Hi, I'm James, an engineer-minded creative from Los Angeles specializing in XR development and immersive sound design.
I enjoy collaborating closely with storytellers, game developers, and artists to create compelling XR experiences with immersive audio and powerful narratives. My work is influenced by travels to 62 countries, and an ethos close to my core to explore the diversity that we all offer. Recently, my sound design was featured in Upstander, a 360 film premiered at Tribeca Immersive.
I graduated from the University of Southern California with a BS in Music Industry, and a focus in Music Technology. While at USC, I interned at Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records and provided assistance at The Lair, a major recording studio in LA.
I have over 10 years of experience with audio production. I produced and recorded with songwriters, singers, rappers, and musicians (+2M Streams). My personal project was crafting a hybrid of classical and electronic music called "Cinelectric," under my alias "Vio la Qestra."
Now, I'm searching for additional ways to create and innovate with sound and in XR. Feel free to learn more detail about my past ventures and projects here, or watch some audio demos and show reels here. Let's create something great together!
