Oscar Coen is a Sound Designer currently working with MIT and on indie games. He is a first-generation American with mixed race Cuban and Dominican parents. Being raised in South Florida, he grew up fending off alligators with his trusty canoe paddle, drinking Cuban espresso from age 5, and trying his best to not become a "Florida Man".
His infamy in middle-school as the kid who made strange, otherworldly noises alone up in a tree all day led him to seek out a career in which those skills would be useful, eventually leading him down the path of Sound Design. During his free time, he enjoys turning beer cans into plasma cannons and theorizing different ways to microwave a microphone.
