My name is Jaime Cross, I am a sound designer and composer for games. I’m currently the Audio Manager at nDreams.

I have been working in the industry for the past 10 years, and have a strong passion for everything game audio related. I am a strong believer in taking a holistic approach to game audio, working out what is best for the game with other departments and team members and how the audio can elevate the whole project to a higher level.

I have worked on small scale to multi-year projects, both in-house and remotely. I am capable of handling a multitude of game audio requirements at each stage of development, and have experience in:

  • Audio direction
  • Sound recording, editing and design
  • Voice over casting, dialogue direction and editing
  • Managing and directing outsourced and contract personnel
  • Audio systems planning and design
  • Music composition and systems design
  • Implementation, mixing and optimisation in middleware and in engine (Unity, Wwise, FMOD Studio)

I also have experience in working in audio post production for linear media and have worked on physical audio based installations.

Additional Info

Previously I worked at Glowmade as Senior Sound Designer on their unannounced project for Amazon Games.

I also worked at Blazing Griffin as an Audio Designer and Acting Audio Lead. I headed up their audio department while working on their upcoming title The Murder Mystery Machine (working title), and previous release Murderous Pursuits. I have also worked on some projects with the Film and Post Production teams.

In 2013 I helped to found Team Junkfish, where I served as company director. In 2015 they released a survival horror game called Monstrum, which was nominated for TIGA, Develop and BAFTA Scotland awards. I also handled the PR and marketing at Team Junkfish on top of the audio and directorial duties. In my second stint at the company from 2019 to 2021 I was the Audio Lead for Monstrum 2, handling all of the audio requirements from asset creation, implementation and working with outsourcers like voice actors.

In 2020 I was a co-producer on OTHERWORLD: A Tribute to Silent Hill for the record label Materia Collective, which launched at the end of October in the same year.

I’m a graduate of the University of Abertay Dundee via Ayr College in Sound Production, with a focus on audio implementation in games and the use of 3D sound.

In November 2015 I was voted onto the IGDA Scotland board on a two year term, and in 2017 was re-elected once again as the group has grown. In 2019 the board members formed the Scottish Game Developers Association, a Scottish Charitable Organisation, to strengthen our efforts in supporting the Scottish game development community.

I did some guest lecturing at the Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio on Game Audio, and have spoke at a number of different events and universities.
