Chris Trevino is an American field recordist and sound designer for video games, theater and other linear/interactive media. Chris was born and raised a Yooper in the rural Upper Peninsula of Michigan. His most ambitious field recording project to date, “The Japan Sound Effects Collection”, was a Kickstarter-funded solo 3-month backpacking trip throughout Japan to record regional soundscapes.

During the summer of 2012, he interned at The Detroit Chop Shop with Ric Viers, author of the Sound Effects Bible, and helped record and edit commercial sound effects libraries for BlastwaveFX. Since then, he’s continued to collaborate with Ric and his interns. 

Chris graduated from Michigan Technological University with a bachelors of art in sound design, and studied Japanese at the Japan Center for Michigan Universities in Hikone, Shiga.
