Mid-Range Baritone, Rich, Believable, Authentic, Consistent with Conversational Gravitas in a Natural Speaking Voice
Consistent, confident and professional; my normal voice is a mid-range baritone. My reads are naturally conversational, smooth and articulate with intentional gravitas sprinkled throughout (or not). I maintain a friendly intelligence with an even tone and a mature professional sound for academic reads.
My reads are also friendly and authoritative while maintaining my typical enunciation and believable projection. I also naturally add a good range of emotional inflection throughout my reads. For documentaries, narrative or audio book reads, I maintain a tone so as to not interfere with the content. I'm not a typical movie-trailer voice but have the intense dramatic feel, with low tones, that can add a suspenseful quality to any trailer. I can also perform the booming classic commercial, radio announcer voice for a larger than life impact and explosive reads.

My Voice Experience
I'm currently recording a series of College Level Textbooks / Audio-Books for a Publisher. So far I've completed:
> Interpersonal Communication Skills - College Textbooks / Audio-Books
> The Nation Divides - The Vietnam War & Social Conflict - College
Textbooks / Audio-Books
> Janssen Pharmaceuticals - Commercial
> Post Production Magazine - Corporate Video
For more than 13 years I've been in the Real Estate industry where my communication skills have benefited me greatly. The prior 20-years I've use my voice for professional phone sales and group presentations (Canon - Xerox - MCI - LA Cellular, AT&T, Dictaphone and Cellular One) for large groups of executives and employees. I was also a part of the Real Estate Radio Show "House Calls" on KABC in 2011/12 and I understand how to use my voice to project confidence.
As of 2014 I've been focusing strictly on voice over work and I'm willing to accept any work to build my resume professionally.
In 2012 I trained with Voice Coach Nancy Wolfson of Braintracks Audio and recorded my primary demos with Marc Graue. I also attended diction classes for several years as a young-adult and now have perfect diction and enunciation.
My Studio Equipment
My home studio consists of a Professionally built 4x4 Recording Studio with 5" thick walls, ceiling and floor and 3".of Soundproofing Stone Wool Insulation. I've also lined the inner walls with "Audiomute" sound proofing blankets for a dead-quite background. The structure (studio) is also completely separate from the existing walls and floor within my home, to eliminate vibrations from other surfaces.
I use Sonar Home Studio software for recording and editing, Focusrite Solo Pre Amp and a Perception 200 large diaphragm condenser Mic.
I can and am willing to travel to any designated studio in my area for Phone-patch or ISDN requirements. Otherwise I can deliver edited and finished audio files via Email or FTP as mp3, 44.1 kHz, 16 bit, mono and 192 Kbps. (Other formats available upon request)
