Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Jamil Houston and I am an alumni of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). I graduated with a B.F.A in Sound Design and double minored in music composition and music production. I currently live in Atlanta, GA. While living in Atlanta I have completed an internship at Silent Sound Studios (Studio Estate recently purchased by Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., known professionally as T.I. and Tip) and am currently an intern at Creative Sound Concepts while work as a stagehand for Rhino Staging.
I love a lot about the production of sound and music, but what I enjoy the most is the exploration of creativity it fosters. There are many elements we come across daily that can be used in our process of telling a story. I want to combine our experiences and play a part in your creation. I come from a singing and acting background, so the nostalgia of my younger years radiate when working with a crew on a production.
Beyond working on creative projects such as: animated films, motion media and live action, Rhino Staging has given me much experience in other areas of production such as lighting, video, rigging and live sound. My experience as an intern has taught me the importance of maintaining attention to detail and how to think ahead in order to provide excellent customer service. It's through this practice, that even while under pressure I've been able to focus on the task at hand while being aware of my surroundings to give someone the advantage of help when needed. When it comes to working with others I'm a team player, an active listener and a warrior when it comes to my designated tasks. I am committed to pushing myself to achieve more everyday and to always staying curious.
Besides my work, I'm a thoughtful guy to be around and am filled with a contagious love, laughter and a smile. I play the ukulele, am an Atlanta Falcons fan, enjoy listening to jazz. I have an endless fascination and respect for the water -beaches particularly. Since there are no beaches in Atlanta, places like Cascade Springs, Stone Mountain and Piedmont Park are where I like to hang out. Last but not least I'm a black man that puts his faith in Jesus.
If you would like to talk sound or are interested in any of my work please feel free to reach out.
