My name is Gabriel Guzman, but I go by Guz. I’m a creative storyteller who specializes in audio for film and television. After studying my past to find out where my love for storytelling began, I realized that it’s been scattered heavily in all of the meaningful memories of my childhood. The biggest influence as a kid was my father because he knew how to command the attention of the audience and convey emotion, conflict, and imagery in the stories and jokes he told. I also noticed how I’ve allowed myself to be drawn toward the art by putting myself in all the right situations to learn and grow. Slowly and slowly I started to develop my skills and knowledge, but once I was introduced to sound design for film I immediately knew that it was what I wanted to master.
