About


Hi : ) You can call me Ken or Kenneth. Beats Away is my Youtube Channel/SoundCloud name.

Data Analytics
I recently graduated from the data data analytics bootcamp at generation.org in April 2022, I am fluent in SQL using SSMS, Python3 using Jupyter and Visual Studio Code and PowerBI. I love visualizing data in creative and presentable ways for people to get new insights from the data.

Game, Sound and Music
As a sound designer and composer, I’ve been in the game industry for more than 10 years, designed sound effects and music for many games, game trailers, short advertisements and short films. I can create audio assets for a variety of projects. I use logic pro X and wwise mostly. *Good news is if you are a game developer using wwise, I can work back and forth with your team effectively by updating on the same wwise project after every build, without changing any existing wwise sound events' names. https://youtu.be/of_XugXwe_U

Voice Over Production
I had recruited and directed voice talents to record multilingual in-game voice overs for many games. I am also a mix engineer which means I can post edit/tweak/mix/master the voice material, or some musical acapellas to professional quality.

Video Editing
I use premier to composite game trailers by capturing gameplay footages and animating provided static art assets. I am also familiar with other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro and Da Vinci resolve. I can also design and customize music visualization effects with your audio materials, using MaxMSP, unity and magic music visual.
