DOUGLAS ROBERTSON (Sound Design)
Doug's first sound design was the fifth grade school musical. "I guess I just can't ignore a VU meter." Threading projectors and running spotlights seemed like the thing to do. Eventually Doug found himself in the Media Department of the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where he ran KPVA, the student radio station and met his mentor, Pat Coakley. "Mr. C was the first sound guy at channel 8. He infected me with the pioneering spirit that came with inventing TV."
In the late stages of his fourth professional decade, he has been nominated five times and been awarded two Lone Star Emmys for Sound Design as well as three Emmy nominations.
