Ariel Gross is currently the Studio Audio Director at Volition, where he has contributed in various ways to Saints Row IV, Saints Row: The Third, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Saints Row 2, and Guillermo del Toro's Insane (canceled). Prior to that, he had worked on countless handheld, indie, and casual games.
Ariel was co-owner of the now-defunct spoomusic.com netlabel. He still composes music and gives it away freely under the monikers of sp00, sleem, and most recently, Auto Von Bismarck, which can be listened to at his SoundCloud page as well as at panbrello.com. His credits can be viewed at his personal web site.
Ariel is also the SysOp of the sound design resource web site Creating Sound.
