Sound Designer

I began studying and performing music at age 9. Sharing music with others always brought me great joy. Performing was an exciting, figurative language that allowed me to express intimate emotions. Through developing this passion, I discovered the world of musical theater and the joy of blending musicality, technology, creativity, and organization to build productions that would meaningfully connect audiences with art. Harnessing this energy, I developed a career in sound design that has seen me through freelancing, touring, management, and graduate school. I designed this website to give you a glimpse into my journey and the designs that I continue to create. I currently work at Meyer Sound, where I use my experience to guide others in their pursuit of the perfect sound. I’m excited to see what the future holds for sound design, as more stories emerge every day that can be told using the imaginative power of sound.

“Rhythm is a heartbeat. It’s the first drum, a story in sound that reveals our imagination and celebrates our power.”

– Tony Vacca
