Testimonials

Josh is a creative, talented, dependable, and dedicated audio designer.  He did the fantastic audio for our Moneyball series of games, with many of his sounds finding their way into subsequent, unrelated titles.  VO, music, sound design - he excels at all three.  

- Michael Smith - Audio Designer IV at EVERI Holdings

Ms. Baker creates musical work of exceptional vision and power. She weaves audio clips, musical passages, and textural sounds into a coherent, lush whole which moves and transforms the listener. Listening to her music, I often think she hears the things that no one hears -- nighttime whispers, silent prayers, the language of expression -- and finds a way to make them audible.

- Valerie Polichar - Director of Academic Technology Services at University of California, San Diego

Joshua is very knowledgeable in music, sound design, and video game development. He helped out immensely with sound design and VO processing and implementation on our projects at Sony Online Entertainment.

- Russel Porter - Audio Designer IV at Everi Holdings

Josh was a breeze to work with during my time at Everi. He never failed to deliver on his work, be it turning audio around at a breakneck pace or adjusting to feedback on the fly. He was just as dependable in the difficult times as he was the normal day-to-day. If I got a chance to work with him again, I would.
