Farmers Road- John MurrayJohn Murray

A long-time educator and sound designer, John Murray has held faculty positions at Xavier University and Columbia College Chicago, and most recently as a department chair and dean at Tribeca Flashpoint College.

His concurrent career in the professional audio and film industries has spanned more than 30 years at studios in Milwaukee, Cincinnati, and Chicago. In 1997, he created JM Audio Services, specializing in remote recording and archival of orchestral and choral music.

In 2010, Mr. Murray’s further interests turned to social impact documentaries when he created ECHO 61 and began a five-year project producing and directing A Farmer’s Road, a documentary about sustainable, small-scale artisanal farming and locally-sourced food systems.

He has also served as an executive board member for the 501(c)3 organization Good Pitch Chicago in partnership with BRITDOC Foundation and Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program.
