Chris Teixeira (’11) is a Sound Designer and Music Composer for Big Viking Games in London. Chris grew up listening to a lot of music. “I always loved the music and sound effects in video games. I never could have imagined I could take what I was passionate about and turn that into a career. It’s the best job in the world.” Big Viking makes free-to-play social & mobile games which are accessible on the web, Facebook, and mobile devices. He has been with the company for over 3 years and worked on games that reach roughly 100 000 players daily. You can hear Chris’ work in titles such as YoWorld, Monsters and Dungeons, Tiny Kingdoms, Dark Heroes and Fish World.
Chris says, “OIART gave me the foundation and the knowledge to be ready for any situation. Even though I primarily do sound design, I’m always using other skills I learned at OIART.” We wish you continued success Chris!
