About Sonic Shepherd
My name is Bret Johns and I'm a sound designer based in Los Angeles California. For the last 6 years I was the senior sound designer for Marvel Heroes MMO. I've worked in video games, television, and film since 2003. In 2018 I started working free-lance on various titles for Formosa Interactive and The Sound Lab. In 2019 I started a full time position as a supervising sound designer for The Sound Lab @ Keywords Studios.
My first exposure to a high quality sound effects library date back to my roots at Soundelux in Hollywood. I could get lost for days listening to the collection they had on their server. As an independent sound designer I've had to take some creative steps to do more with less, but it was easy to see the advantage they had with such an incredible library. Creativity still plays a large role in the work that I do today, but I’ve learned that inspirational, unique recordings help shape that creativity and make my job as a sound designer much easier. My goal for all future Sonic Shepherd projects is to produce sound libraries for other sound designers with that perspective in mind.
