Jon Profile 2017 Starting his career in the music industry, Jon soon found his passion in the world of audio post production and location sound. He spent the next 7 years learning from some of the industry's leading sound engineers, working at a variety of studios and broadcasters including CTV and TSN.

After 10 years in the business, Jon decided to venture out and create his own company, and in 2009 Brown Sound Audio was born. He set out to start a business that offered a variety of services in audio production. Operating a company with a small overhead, Jon was able to provide his clients with exceptional service, delivering a final product at an affordable cost, without compromising quality.

In early 2010, he expanded his company and began collaborating with some of Ottawa’s top audio engineers and composers. Together, Jon and his team would go on to work on some major Warner productions created for the NHL and multiple projects in animation and multimedia. Starting off by recording sound on location, then ending with a final mix in post production, Jon has the ability to be involved in a project from start to finish.
