Where do I look for inspiration? As a sound designer, music is really important to me, I try to listen to as much music as possible, which is also the most fun part of my job. I listen to the content, the mix and the feeling the music evokes. I find music to be inspirational.
Two plays changed my life, Poona The F**kdog and other plays for Children written by Jeff Goode and produced by the Adobe Theatre Company, and The Grey Zone by Tim Blake Nelson produced by MCC. Poona taught me how to really think outside of the box and how to invent sound and The Grey Zone taught me about subtlety and how powerful sound can be in live theatre.
My favorite ways to escape are running, reading and knitting. Sometimes listening to music, but only sometimes, since it can also feel like work.
