Chip’s self-effacing style belies the fact that he’s one of the most highly regarded sound designers and mixers in the industry. Just ask the clients who work with him on a regular basis. Producers in the entertainment industry come to D1 especially for his ADR talents, while ad agency creatives seek him out for extraordinary sound design. Chip grew up outside of Detroit and gravitated to the Pacific Northwest thanks to his love for the outdoors. Perhaps that explains why he’s a much better surfer, skier and biker than he is a trumpet player. Terrible, in fact. Just awful.
