My Voice Experience

I am currently just starting out. I have a demo that I did at Marc Graue recording studio that I can send for anyone to sample. I have experience as a Radio Operator in the US Air Force and have no mic fright. I am a graduate of Dale Carnegie in Public Speaking and Human Relations, so I can speak in front of a crowd comfortably. I feel that once someone has listened to my demo, they will be impressed. I am planning on taking more courses in voiceover and voice acting.
If you are looking for a mature and responsible person that will be available when needed, please contact me.
I have always wanted to get into voiceover work since my time in the Air Force. I was in from 1977 to 1981, so this has been a long time dream. I came across Marc Graue when I drove by his studio in Burbank, CA. I spoke to Marc and took his course covering the L.A. voiceover market and was hooked.
I also have experience in music. I played the trumpet for many years, since Junior High and into college, so if needed, I can interact with a musical background.

My Training

Played trumpet at Canyon High School. Was first chair in both the symphonic wind ensemble and Jazz band. Played at the Hollywood Bowl in the Battle of the Bands in 1975. Traveled to Switzerland and played at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Traveled across Switzerland playing in concerts and a radio concert.
I was a Ground Radio Operator and I handle the radio communications for a VIP mission to Viet Nam to retrieve the remains of US Service men in 1978. I held a Top Secret clearance and was entrusted with various communication missions. My training enabled me to become very comfortable in talking over radio frequencies. I learned to project my voice so that I could be heard even on weak frequencies.
I am a graduate of Dale Carnegie in Public Speaking and Human Relations. I went back as a graduate assistant where because of my speaking abilities, I was able to assist the instructor of the class.

My Studio Equipment

I currently have a Micro-Track II, so I can create a demo to send to a prospective client. This is a portable unit and is very easy to operate. I also have a reel to reel recorder and can also create a disc. If necessary, I can go to the Marc Graue studio and put together a demo if needed. I have plans of creating my own studio in my home in the near future.

Additional Skills

I am currently a Distribution Supervisor with a world wide company. I have managerial experience and am very responsible and mature. I follow direction well and am able and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
I have a voice that carries well and can be heard by the hard of hearing. Books on tape/disc would be enjoyed by these individuals. However, my voice would be equally at home doing documentaries, commercials, or cartoon work.
