Andrei Tatu developed his passion about sound as a teenager, building his own speakers, amplifiers, and discovering the wonders of synthesizers.
Later on, pointing his attention towards post production, sound design and following the dream of becoming a sound engineer, he pursued studies in mixing at Berklee College of Music where he gained a keen interest for the nature and emotional influence of the human voice which led him into audiobook editing and now, when he’s not working for BeeAudio he spends his free time as a music producer and sound designer for independent games and personal projects.
Blame it on a life-long love of language and dialects, particularly those of the American southeast where he’s from, coupled with several decades as a musician and producer fascinated with the workings of recording studios, sound quality and the mechanics of audio recording.

Tim started recording music on a tape to tape karaoke machine, layering the guitars and vocals separately and was hooked. He got some recording gear for Christmas and didn’t look back. He went to the Atlanta Institute of Music for Guitar and Audio Engineering and honed his skills.
But audiobooks had been a part of his life from an earlier time, when he listened to the Ninja Turtles audio tape that accompanied a comic book. He listened to that tape over and over. Little did he know, audiobooks would be such a big part of his life later on. Carpentry would be his second hobby, building things out of wood is something he finds quite relaxing. Just recently, he built a tiny house inside a tractor trailer. Based in Atlanta, Ga, he enjoys loud music, southern BBQ, and sweet tea.
