“JD and I have been working together for nearly 8 years now. The attention to detail that he puts into his work is unparalleled. JD has always been very creative and flexible when it comes to trying out new audio techniques. I'm always amazed at how much quality audio he can cram into the small resource spaces that are provided by the runtime hardware.”
