Sound Designer based in Toronto, ON
Hello, my name is Yanni Caldas and I focus on creating storytelling sound design that enhances the user experience.
I am passionate about bringing visions to life and helping to push the boundaries on immersion and hyperrealistic sound. Considering myself a generalist, I am eager to aid wherever needed within a team to help finish projects to their highest potential.
My career has been an exciting endeavor that has been a rollercoaster. Beginning as a composer for television and advertising, then working as an engineer at a recording studio, and after freelancing as a music mix engineer, producer, and audio quality control for audiobooks. Following my love for games and sound, I am now transitioning to work as an in-house sound designer for video games.

Record the world
Along with 614 other recordists from around the world, I participated in a crowdsource sound effects library that recorded various ambiences from 6 different countries. All proceeds were donated to The Water Project. In total, we have raised more than $42,000 for 1,250 people to have access to clean, safe water! How cool is that?!
