You do what you enjoy doing. I'm no different.
I've voiced numerous commercials for Texas clients in addition to other clients in the Midwest, Southeast and West Coast. I'm not just the voice. I produce/image all of my material in house.
My experience covers voiceovers and imaging for CHR, Rhythmic CHR, Rhythmic AC, Urban, and Urban AC, and Smooth Jazz radio and internet. Mixshow drops, Segues, and more.
Looking to delve more into the TV aspects.
Whether it's a special voice, solid producer, or creative writer and branding specialist, I "Git r' done."

My Voice Experience
Full radio station imaging, commerical TV/radio/online production, and general/specific voicework for all types of clientele.
Strong skills in imaging for CHR, Rhythmic CHR, Urban (Hip-Hop) Urban AC, and Jazz formats. Voice and approach can easily be catered to your needs, however.
Voiced and produced concert spots for Beyonce, Case, Common, 3-6-Mafia, Rob G, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Soulja Boy, Wu-Tang Clan, UGK, Keith Sweat, Ronnie Laws, Jackheim Joyner, and more!
I've done all the on-air dayparts; been MD, APD, Production/Imaging Director, etc. and worked a handful of formats in the last 15 years.
I always remained partial to production, as it gives you the ability to create something from nothing.
You learn by doing. You grow by making mistakes, and you advance by having people that believe in your talent. Great thanks to a handful of individuals that took the time to provide an opportunity and invaluable advice: Rudy Ramos, Elroy Smith, Rasheeda Ali, Michael Soul, Mike McCurdy, TJ Roberts, Rick Party, Don Amiche, Deborah Lesser, Dusty Hayes, and others.
I'd be remiss not to pay proper respects to two class acts that passed way to early: TJ Roberts and Rudy Ramos.
I was blessed to work with both men over the last 6 years. TJ was Production Director and voice guy for CBS Baltimore. He was my voice guy for our Rhythmic station (KXBT) in Austin from 2006-2008. A versatile reader and blessed talent.
Rudy Ramos was "family" in every sense of the word. Not just a bad-ass OM/PD EVERYWHERE he's been, but especially in Austin at KXBT. Rudy allowed me (as a Production & Imaging Director) to creatively run free and produce/image anything and not think twice. Some of my most fulfilling times in radio were because I had the chance to work next to him.
My Studio Equipment
Dell PC with Cool Edit 2.0, 3.0, Adobe Audition 3.0, Acid Pro, Vegas Pro, Sibelius, Soundforge.
Behringer Eurorack UB222-FX-Pro, Waveterminal 192M Interface, Rode Condenser Mic.
I've got other stuff to use when/where necessary.
Does my wife count as studio equipment? She's versed in AC, CHR, Rhythmic, and Spanish formats.
Spanish-English translations? Yup; we got you.
So flexible, I can roll out production work off copy points and no script. It's almost telepathic. Ask some of my clients. You won't be able to tell the difference. (Scripts are recommended, however)
Copy writing & scripting skills to help build and enhance the sound, style, and attitude of your brand.
Want to create meaningful material and better audio visibility for your needs? Let's talk.
Want to get quality work with a quick turnaround?
Want to be hip, without pandering?
Want clean, crisp well-produced material?
Do you understand how/why good production creates an emotional bond with your consumer/listener? And why that can mean more business for you?
Do you realize why the quality of the production must match the quality of your service?
