My name is Andrew Chard. I have been working with music, recording, and sound for the majority of my life. I started as a musician, and that was exposed to the world of recording. I am proficient in both Pro Tools and Logic Pro.  I am currently learning Unity and FMOD Studio. I have my bachelors degree in Music and Recording from The Evergreen State College, and I attend the Academy of Art University San Fransisco as a graduate student in the Sound Design for film and video games department. I would love to combine my love of video games and sound by working in the games industry. My love of recording also comes from producing podcasts and other web content. I have recorded and edited hundreds of podcast episodes and many podcast/vlog style youtube videos.

I am currently looking for work in the industry of sound. I am available for on location work, as well as long distance editing work, and am also open to relocating. I am available to record, edit, and mix a variety of mediums. I work with music, film, television, web content, and podcasts. I have experience working in a variety of settings and budget levels. I am able to communicate your ideas to get you the product you want even if you know nothing about sound. I am also a fairly proficient video editor, and am available to sync mismatched audio to picture, in addition to fixing a variety of other audio visual issues. Even if you just need audio cleaned up, I have tools and methods for rescuing dialog from less than ideal recoding setups. I am also interested in an internship in the field of sound design for video games.
