Bio

Seph Lawrence is a sound supervisor/designer and Blizzard veteran whose association with the Diablo franchise dates back to his work on Diablo II as a contractor. He later became a full-time employee of Blizzard where he held stewardship over the audio efforts for the Diablo franchise for almost his entire eleven-year tenure at the company. For his efforts, and those on the Diablo audio team, they won a number of accolades including the GANG Audio of The Year award for Diablo III. With a game audio career spanning over two decades, Seph has enjoyed a wide variety of work including many Blizzard titles and the release of the highly acclaimed Metropolis Science Fiction Toolkit series sound effects library.
