Julie Buchanan

audio designer

I currently live in San Diego with my partner and two cat daughters. I've been working as a contractor in game audio for almost 6 years. I've gained a lot of organizational and communication skills from working as a contractor, but I also really value the growth that happens when I get to work with audio teams. I love having variety in my work and am grateful to be able to have had the opportunity to create both sound and music for a variety of projects. I think having experience on both sides of the game audio world has helped me improve at both. Some of my favorite genres to work in are horror, narrative-driven, and sci-fi. I love creating creature and gore sound design, and writing electronic music. 

Before moving to San Diego I got my start at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA as a Film Scoring major and Video Game Scoring minor. Afterwards I moved to Los Angeles, CA where I interned under Henry Jackman and Lorne Balfe at Remote Control Productions. I pivoted into game audio after my internships ended and started teaching myself sound design. I've been happily creating game audio ever since!
