My Voice Experience

I have done public address work for over 25 years, with many accolades from my audience. So much so, in fact, that I decided to begin a career in voiceover. My animation voices were developed over time, entertaining small groups in comedy venues, and working with known coaches. I have experience recording audiobooks and whiteboard/explainer video scripts, testimonials, etc.

My Training

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Leadership,
training in mediation, and have several classes under my belt toward a Master's Degree in Communication. More recently, I worked with a variety of professional vocal coaches.

My Studio Equipment

I do my own recording and editing in my studio by "Vocalbooth". It is equipped with a Furman sound conditioner, a Neumann TLM 107 mic, a Golden Age pre-amp, a Blackjack Onyx interface, and I-Mac with Adobe Audition software. This allows clean recordings and quick turn-around on all productions. I have multiple sound tracks and sound effects to compliment production work. Audio files can be delivered via e-mail, FTP, or regular old snail mail.

Additional Skills

I have over 25 years of public speaking experience, and have worked in a variety of venues where public relation skills are essential to client/customer retention. I have recorded and edited multiple audiobooks, whiteboard/explainer video scripts, testimonials, etc.
