My name is Doug Newell and I started Zipline Sound because I’m passionate about creating sound and music. I work out of my studio in Pasadena California where I create and record audio for a diverse range of products and productions. A list of my professional credits can be found by clicking on the “Resume” link on the home page or at the bottom of this page.
Every bio starts with a mother and father and my “sound bio” is no different. My mother taught piano from home so from an early age I was able to develop an ear for music and timing. My father was a pastor at a church where I got the opportunity to record the services and stare at the audio faders and flickering level lights. In high school I got a job with an audio visual rental company where I learned about setting up and running the sound boards for live events. I graduated from Texas A&M University where I studied Theatre and Film. Since graduating I’ve lived in New York, Dallas, and Austin before moving to the L.A. area. I haven’t stopped honing my skills or learning new technologies. That thirst for improvement is what I believe allows me to deliver innovative, creative and professional-quality sound and music.
