Stephen has been perfecting his skills as an audio engineer for the better part of a decade. His career began by attending Media Tech (formerly known as Dallas Sound Lab) and interning at Eagle Audio. Its worth mentioning that Stephen is just one of several Funimation Entertainment regulars in the audio scene that also studied there. Other Dallas Sound Lab alumni include: Kenneth Thompson, Andrew Tipps, Adrian Cook, and Nathanael Harrison.
For the past several years, Stephen has had the fortune of working on several anime titles: Black Butler (both seasons) with Ian Sinclair, Linebarrels of Iron with Caitlin Glass, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone with Mike McFarland, and Sgt. Frog with Joel McDonald. Other credits include Fairy Tail, Heroic Age, Initial D, Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Full Metal Alchemist, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino, and One Piece.
Along with anime, Stephen has a fondness for doing sound for live events, films, and podcasts. He has engineered at Fort Worth's Ridglea Theater and Deep Ellum's Red Blood Club. You can occasionally catch Mr. Hoff running sound for Stephanie Young's band, The Brehms (thebrehmsband.com). His film work includes the low budget film, Kodie. Stephen also records the podcast "That Anime Show" (thatanimeshow.com).
