Ash Knowlton is an award winning Sound Editor, Designer, and Mixer located in Brooklyn, NY.  


She started her career in sound as DJ HAZYL - remixing, producing, and curating music in NYC.

One day, by chance, she ran into filmmaker John Zhao on the street and was cast on the spot as the lead for his feature film Alexandria Leaving. The experience opened Knowlton’s eyes to the wonders and complexity of the filmmaking process.  She particularly fell in love with sound mixing and design.

“I know it might sound weird but for me, remixing music and designing sound occupy the same part of my brain. I love music, I love sound design — they are what make me happy. I guess that’s why I’m here,” she says.
