versatile, adaptable, serious to funny
I am a trained voice actor, specializing in everything from natural sincerity to outrageous comedy. I can create wacky characters with my voice, or be your best friend. I do cartoon characters, funny voices, announcers, conversationalists, goofy guys, industrial voice overs, a multitude of accents, and even Mr. Average. I also have an acute sense of comic timing, honed over years of improvisational comedy performances. My voice work, as well as my production abilities, can be heard on my podcast at .

My Voice Experience
After 25 years on the radio dial doing comedy bits, I settled down to writing and recording radio commercials. In the last ten years, I have won numerous local and national awards for my work. I have done character voices for many PC adventure games, plus a few animated shorts. I have been writing, producing, and voicing a comedy podcast since 2006
I have a B.S. in Theatre from the University of Mississippi. I was the head of an improvisational comedy group called "The But Seriously Folks" back in the 80's. I have written, produced, and voiced numerous radio dramas and comedies over the years. I currently write, voice, and produce a comedy podcast called "Bell's in the Batfry".
My Studio Equipment
I have a computer loaded with Adobe Audition. Connected to this, I have an MXL V6 microphone. I record in my Whisper Room sound-proof booth.
I am proficient in using Adobe Audition digital audio editor. I do improvisational stand-up comedy, which includes creating comedy sound effects with my mouth (I go by the name of "Prof. Zounds"). I am also active in local theater.
