Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I grew up in Georgia without an accent (weird) but I sho 'nuff know how to speak like my kin folk! So genuine Southern accent is my alternate voice but no accent at all is my forte'.

My Voice Experience

I have always been told I have a great announcing voice, and it doesn't hurt that I've been a professional entertainer for the past 38 years! I became an audio-visual engineer for the USAF in the 70's which is how I got started in narration and announcing for short educational documentaries. In 1983 I founded an audio production and jingle company in Middle Georgia and become the on-air voice for many local and regional businesses ranging from furniture and pool retailers to car dealers. My voice was used in concert promotion from rock groups to symphonies and even for sports promotions. From 1983 to 1989 I won 18 Middle Georgia Addy Awards. My voice continued to be used in various projects through the 90's ranging from a/v narration for an oceanographic institute to odd projects for an advertising agency that I did IT work for. And I performed as a musician and singer steadily from the early 70's through today. Now I have my own complete home 24-track production studio and computer audio mastering capability. Ready to work for you!
