“Andrea is a talented musician and composer, who sent me a sample CD of her work - I was dazzled. In making my first film, I wanted original music, and I chose Andrea over other musicians. She was prompt, involved, eager, and most of all, supremely talented. In fact, I was so pleased with her score....that I recommended her to another filmmaker for the scoring of another film and to a playwright for a musical. These two colleagues are also deeply impressed with Andrea’s maturity, sensitivity to subject, and utterly professional attitude. Without reservation, I recommend her...she will prove a feather in your cap, I’m certain of it. ”

"The music Andrea wrote for Dawngate is absolutely stunning and the audio work she did for both voice over and in game sound effects is excellent. The press noticed as well and commented on the unusually high quality of the audio and music. Andrea is a joy to work with. She is always smiling and happy and her attitude is downright infectious. Andrea is well versed in tools we were using (Wwise) and always delivered her work complete and in a timely fashion. I've worked on games for nearly twenty years now, and I have to say that on Dawngate, we had the best audio department I have ever worked with. And with only two people, Andrea deserves a lot of the credit for making that the case."

-David Lee Swenson  (Sr. Software Engineer at Sony Computer Entertainment America, Previously Sr. Software Engineer III at Electronic Arts on “Dawngate”)

“It's been a true pleasure working with Andrea on HoloLens! Andrea is a super creative and versatile sound designer and composer. She managed all aspects of sound design for our studio and made fundamental contributions to the the audio experience at all levels. Andrea is passionate, driven, and a consummate team player.”

-Dana Zimmerman  (Executive Producer at Microsoft Studios on HoloLens app “Actiongram”)

“Andrea is one of those rare, jack of all trades, master of all, types who also happens to be an excellent person to work with.

I worked with her when she was one of two audio engineers and I was the Art Development Director on Electronic Art's Dawngate. Andrea was half of a power house audio team that was responsible for, regularly (every 3 weeks) putting out a brand new character with all their VO and sound effects.

Andrea also contributed heavily to the music in the game, creating the musical numbers for our tournaments and designing the audio for our new UI we updated the front end of our game. Again, all of these projects were while doing all VO work and sounds effects for a new champion every 6 weeks.

Andrea approached all this work with a positive calm demeanor, which given the day in, day out stresses of working on a live game is difficult to maintain.

Finally, she was a true believer in the game, played it regularly and was genuinely passionate about its success.

I highly recommend Andrea and hope to work with her again in the future.”
