ABI Profile: Cameron
holds a bachelor of Music in Music Technology with a minor in Web Programming & Applications from New York University. Cameron did an internship with One Thousand Birds in New York in Fall 2020.
"In the Fall of 2020, I had an amazing opportunity to intern at One Thousand Birds, an audio design studio in New York. Through the internship, I was given the responsibility to edit, mix, master and sound design - essentially the the art of carefully crafted sounds in each scene and frame."
"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has greatly impacted the live event and music industry. Although there are limited live event internship available, I have decided that it is also very important to develop a wide range of skillsets that can benefit my career goal of being a live sound engineer. This internship provided a lot of valuable industry knowledge and gave me the chance to learn how to effectively mix and master tracks."
