Amanda was originally a musician, still is. But after earning a BA in Music Composition from Smith College, she discovered that she loved recording as much as composing. So she moved to NYC where she completed a Masters Degree in Music Technology at New York University. Since then she's worked as a live sound engineer and at post production houses throughout the city, on various projects including music, film, television, video games, audiobooks and commercials. She served as an ADR engineer on Season 2 of Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," and dialogue editor for Telltale Games' "The Walking Dead: The Game."

Meanwhile, Amanda continues to compose music, and loves most things Star Trek, and scuba diving.

Amanda is well versed in Pro Tools, Reaper, Twisted Wave, Audacity and other software, is experienced with the most popular VO mics, and – having edited and mastered 500+ audiobooks – knows post-production, too. As one of the Edge Studio staff available for remote and on-site consulting, she enjoys travel. In fact, Amanda would like eventually to visit all seven continents. Maybe she can combine these ambitions? Hey, Antarctica, need some hands-on audio guidance?
