My Voice Experience

Started my career as a disc jockey during the era when reel-to reel was king. I have performed on-air doing live remotes, mc'd local music concerts including " Asleep at the Wheel". My career has transitioned to voice -overs including presentation style reads for small, medium and larger corporations such as Express Scripts..Shenendoah Life Insurance to such fun filled events as "The Dustball Rally" now on you tube.
I also do a variety of commercial reads for tv stations in virtually every market. I specialize in fast turn because lets face it the industry demands and deserves
quick, professional response to voice over requests.

My Training

Graduated with a degree in Communications from Central Missouri State Univeristy. Have done both college and communcity theater including the lead role in Shakespeare's " A Mid Summeer Night's Dream". Studied with Susan Berkley to enchance my basic voice-over skills.

My Studio Equipment

Employ three micophones including an audix 6, considered by many engineers one of the finest dynamic microphones produced as well as a Neumann condenser mic and a Peavy 9000 microphone.My choice is the audix 6 because it has a very slight hint of color but a very clean sound. The Neumann is a great mic but has too much bass presence and lacks musical clarity. A better choice for tenor voices..I record with a Mackie 1200 onxy mixer. When finely tuned can give forth great musicality. Also edit with Adobe Audition 1.5 and master most of my audio with T-Racks stand alone mastering system.

Additional Skills

While I have a very up-tone,funny personality, I take the art of doing voice over seriously. I desire every audio I do to do a great hit with the client. Having a plethora of experience in radio and televison sales, sales management, and copywriting gives me a unique viewpoint on the over-view of the industry.. The voice over is the valuable final product,but one should also know and understand the talents of those that engineer and craft the the copy and sell the idea.. Without these folks, some of us would have to get real Jobs!
