“Troy adds a dynamic range of capabilities to our audio department,” said Barb Condit, Splice partner. “His resume spans from field to agency which gives him great perspective on the creative possibilities. His years of experience with broadcast mixing and sound design for television, commercials and music videos will be a great fit for Splice.”
Hermes’ career began as an assistant engineer in Miami, which evolved to audio engineering for TV and radio. He moved to London and joined NBC as a freelance location sound engineer. NBC sent Hermes to Afghanistan and Iraq to record audio for its Nightly News, Dateline, MSNBC, and live shots with Tom Brokaw from various locations throughout Iraq. After spending time on location, Hermes settled down and picked up mixing and sound design for television and commercials through Crow TV in London. He also worked as a sound mixer and sound designer for the BBC show, EastEnders. Upon returning to the United States, Hermes worked in New York with ad agency Ogilvy & Mather.
