Adam Axbey has been making sounds and music for film and television since 1999. He enjoys hats and has worn many – music editor, ADR director, sound designer, composer, mixer and sound supervisor. At least three people would describe him as an avid cyclist, an awful chess player, a terrific dad, a top notch libationist, sort of interested in game theory, perhaps less funny and more droll, a grateful husband and a very lucky man. Like all audio professionals he can wiggle at least one of his ears.
