Game Programmer & Sound Designer

Hello! My name is Christopher Butcher, I am a game programmer, sound designer, and composer. I love music, video games, and learning new things, which is why I pursued a BS in Game Design after receiving a BA in Instrumental Music Education.

I've done a little bit of everything, from pixel art to shaders, writing game AI to writing story outlines, recording and implementing voice lines, and a bunch of stuff in between. I enjoy thinking about how each individual piece interacts with the others and working on a team to make it all sing.

I'm looking for work in the games industry! I'm currently living in Bloomington, Indiana, but am up for relocation or remote work & collaboration.

Audio

I've played with orchestras, in jazz combos, and even been on a couple of tours with a punk band. Now, I'm focusing on composing for video games & sound design. Although upright bass is my primary instrument, I can play a little bit of anything thanks to my degree in Instrumental Music Education. These days I write mostly on guitar, bass, and keyboard. As for composing & recording, I use Reason 11, ProTools, Adobe Audition, and FamiStudio.
