My Voice Experience

Most of career has been spent as a TV feature reporter, mostly with CNN. At CNN narrated several long form, documentary programs in addition to my feature stories. I was valued for my "non-reporter" and "non-announcery" style....often described as everyman. Since CNN I've done several character voices in commercials and narrated a documentary for Georgia Public Broadcasting about the history of Augusta, GA and the Masters Golf Tournament. Have done additional voice over work for Georgia Public Broadcasting including a dynamic opening for their Friday Night Football program - "Football Fridays in Georgia."

My Training

a BA degree in Speech and Drama from the Catholic University of America. The rest of my training has been "on the job" during 35 years as a broadcaster. In that time, I always sought to discover my own voice as opposed to imitating others.
As I grew older, that task became simpler. But the bulk of my career has been spent in communications and journalism, always trying to find the most effective way to tell a story and engage an audience both with the written word and with the voice.

My Studio Equipment

I have my own "studio" but thats using the word loosely. I have a Blue Snowball microphone that plugs into my Imac and I record and edit using the Sound Studio audio program. When I record, I erect some temporary soundproofing. . Most clients are fine with the audio quality but some prefer that I record in a professional studio. I anticipate upgrading my microphone and going to the ProTools program

Additional Skills

I have some limited skills in Final Cut Pro editing. As a producer and writer, I have a keen understanding of how VO talent needs to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the project.
