Eleven founder/mixer/sound designer Jeff Payne has announced three team additions to his growing audio post company, with Madeleine “Maddee” Bonniot as producer, Andrew Smith as assistant mixer and Jordan “Jojo” Hart as client services and facilities coordinator.

A Los Angeles native, Bonniot moved north to attend the University of San Francisco and earned a BA degree in media studies, while working in the university’s events management department. She made her way back to L.A. after college and worked as an associate producer at Santa Monica music house HUM. Her event and music production background helped her find her way to Eleven, where she has taken on the role of producer.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Montgomery County, MD, Hart recently relocated to the Los Angeles area. Having studied communications, Hart has garnered experience as a production assistant, as well as with event planning--learning the tricks of the trade at a young age by helping with her mother’s event planning business. These skills have allowed Hart to bring a keen attention to detail and creativity to her client services capacity.

Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Smith has always had a passion for music and sound design. From playing drums to programming beats in high school, he has always known he wanted to work with sound. Moving to Los Angeles in 2015, Smith shifted his career focus to audio postproduction, landing a six-month internship at Eleven that yielded his current role as assistant mixer.
