Hello! I'm Aaron Baer. I'm a sound designer from Chicago, currently studying Game Sound Design at Columbia College Chicago. Growing up I have always had a fascination with games, music and every aspect of sound. Starting in high school I picked up a guitar and never put it back down.
Before going back to school to pursue sound design I originally completed a Music Composition Degree. After I graduated I explored what I wanted to do in life and ultimately decided to combine two of my passions, games and sound.
When it comes to sound I enjoy exploring interactive environments and how a "player" is influenced by whatever sounds they experience. Anything from jumping at a scream to following a musical cue to an objective is what really drives me to work in interactive sound.
In terms of other interests, I have been studying Japanese language and culture for three years and even studied in Kyoto for five weeks. I practice yoga a few times a week and became a certified instructor a few years ago.
