My Home Base

, Minnesota, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Characterizations: Santa, silly hillbilly, believable neighbor, confused DIY'er, over-the-top game-show host, whiny wise-guy or the inimitable "What-in-the-Wide-Wide-World-of-Sports-is-a-goin-on-here" announcer.

Impersonations: the Ant & the Aardvark, Joey Bishop, Italian Tony Baloney and yes, Santa.

My Voice Experience

I'll admit it. My job for years has been to chop-shop spot commercials into Expected Works of Art. But with the pressure and expectations came opportunity to expound on characters and emotions.

From CARGILL SALT WATER TABLETS (yes, there IS a particular way to say it) to SCOTT'S WINTER FERTILIZER, there is an emotion, a message, and a way to convey it effectively. That's where I come in.

So, when SPONSELS APPLE ORCHARD needs a silly hillbilly to get Kids down to the farm, CARPET BURNOUTS needed an Over-the-Top Announcer to emcee the "competition" and HASKELL'S WINE & CHEESE SHOP needed a whiny wise-guy replete with bumbling mafioso ineptness, they called me.

Honorable Mentions: Audi, Caribou Coffee, JC Penney, Kohls, Cub Foods, AFSCME, Keith Ellison for Senate, MN Beef Council, and more.

My Training

A naive kid spins records at his college's radio station in 1982, never realizing that would lead to College Courses then broadcast class teaching and mentoring.

Who knew.

I never even imagined the diversity of opportunities my voice applications would create.

Then, the World became Flat. Columbus was wrong.
Now, i do work for clients in Australia, UK, India, Barcelona and more.

TV Voice Over's, Presentation Narrator, Voice Message Greeter, I was even the voice of God. I wonder what my mom would say?

My Studio Equipment

All vocal recordings are recorded through SHURE, RODE & SENNHEISER microphones, routed and processed through APHEX Mic Pre-Amps, amplified through an ALESIS Amp, then finally arriving at the broadcast-standard, HARRIS 20-channel Mixing Board.

The sound files themselves are edited with another broadcast-standard, PRO TOOLS and/or ADOBE AUDITION, and processed with WAVES plug-ins.

And if the off-occasion my talents are needed at a nearby studio, I also have experience with Pro Tools, Propellerheads Reason, Abelton Live and Battery (drum sequencer).

Additional Skills

The one area I've always wished I could do more work in, was Copywriting; I mean REAL Copywriting. Where you can paint a picture, lead them to a pasture, then completely trash it with a snarky wake-up.

And when you're in Radio, side jobs are a FLAVOR-OF-A-MONTH crash course on people of all walks of life. And there's where you learn the Game of Life.

Restaurant Cook, every last detail is important, or else meet Mr.Anaphylactic Shock.

Record Store Clerk, the movie only scratches the surface. (see what I did there? "scratches"..."records"...nevermind)

Corn Husker. There are still vocational duties not yet improved by The Industrial Revolution. I have my hands to prove it.

Cashier. I STILL remember the make and model of that gun.
