Sten Severson

Audio Video Consultant

Sten joins Schuler Shook with an extensive resume as a theatrical sound designer. His work has been heard throughout Broadway, Off-Broadway, Touring, Regional, and International theatres both as a solo designer and as a partner in Acme Sound Partners. His consulting experience includes his own projects and collaborations with Acme Professional. Sten has taught at New York University’s Tisch School for the Arts and at the Yale School of Drama training the next generation of sound designers.

He leverages this practical experience into collaborative solutions to audio visual challenges in a wide array of venues. Seamless integration of all the performance elements in any venue maximizes the impact of the human story being told.
