Background

Growing up in a small Illinois town, Rodriguez Fruitbat watched every movie he could get his hands on. After getting his degree in Theater from the University of Illinois, he moved to Los Angeles to work as an award winning Sound Designer on movies such as the Matrix sequels and 8-Mile (he has a couple of Golden Reel statues to prove it.) He supervised the sound for several Joel Silver movies and Aeon Flux before moving to Vancouver, Canada where he currently works on AAA video games and pursues his passion for writing horror and comedy features.
