About Me

About me

Hi, I'm Avril.

I'm a sound designer for video games and AR/VR experiences. I have strong background in game audio and am currently looking for  work. My past work includes agent/character abilities sound design for the first-person tactical hero shooter VALORANT as well as pet, playmat, music, and skins design for Legends of Runeterra at Riot Games. You can also check out my VR Work on Microsoft’s 365 Dynamics products in Guides Mixed Reality on Hololens 2 and in Bevel Space’s architectural show rooms.

My some of my current hobbies include watching endless hours of period dramas, going on long walks with my sisters puppy Tibu, and playing ridiculous amounts of shooters and RPG's (*cough, Baldurs Gate 3)

VALORANT is a team-based first-person tactical hero shooter set in the near future. Players play as one of a set of Agents, characters based on several countries and cultures around the world. In the main game mode, players are assigned to either the attacking or defending team with each team having five players on it. Agents have unique abilities, each requiring charges, as well as a unique ultimate ability that requires charging through kills, deaths, orbs, or objectives.
