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 then 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 to help bring stories and experiences to life with the power of sound.

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?!
