Ashu has been a member of the Digital Post Services team since 2013.
Ashu was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. His family moved to LA when he was four, then soon after relocated to Tustin, CA where he spent most of his formative years.
With a B.A. in Business Administration and a secure footing in a corporate position, Ashu was encouraged to follow his passion in audio, his hobby. It was during an invitation to help produce a song at an LA recording studio, where Ashu decided take a leap from what he refers to as his Office Space years. “I typed a lot of TPS Reports before figuring out what I really wanted to do.”
Somewhere between graduating The Los Angeles Recording School and marrying his beautiful wife (two of his most prized decisions), Ashu picked up endless internships in sound editing… until he booked his first feature film, The Silent Mountain, at DPS. “It was a lucky break I was hoping for, but it felt more like sheer dumb luck… but I’ll take what I can get.”
Ashu hasn’t looked back and has moved through every craft required of him. Cueing more than most, cutting anything he can get in front of him, and finally designing. “I hope to keep on rock’n Audio ‘til I am old and gray.”
