Instructional, conversational, storyteller, warm
I have spent the majority of my career reading instructional copy for computer and web based training modules. My voice for those ranges from authoritative, instructional and knowledgeable to funny, warm and compassionate. I have recorded Public Service announcements that ranged from concerned to informative and I have also recorded commercials that were upbeat, seasonal, and frantic! I find I am more comfortable with a conversational copy and I am a very good cold reader. I have voiced videos for corporate environments as well as commercials, news and weather reports for radio. I am always working on an audiobook project and I am always ready to record for radio and TV, eLearning, video and corporate projects.

My Voice Experience
I have been providing voice over services for over 20+ years in a relatively small location in San Diego Ca. The bulk of my career has been spent in the medical device and Life Sciences community for a wide variety of companies. Carrier, LPL Financial Services, JLG Technology, Cardinal Health, ScienceMedia, AMGEN, Eli Lilly, BIOCOMM, Alaris, Novartis, Glaxo Smith Klein, Loral Aerospace, USN, GE, BAE, Blue Sky Broadcast and Group W Media as well as a number of smaller locally based companies where I recorded narrative for sales and marketing materials in the form of DVD and online distribution. I have also narrated and produced audiobooks. I spent 7 years as an announcer for KSDS Jazz 88. 2 years at KPBS 89.5 as an announcer and producer and I worked briefly producing music for airlines with Blue Sky Productions. I have my own professional voiceover studio that I work from, however, I also travel to various other studios to record as well on an as needed basis.
My training started back in 1990 where I attended college for Radio and Television Production. I began working on the air as an announcer at Jazz 88 and that's where it all really took off for me. I spent the next 20 years working in the multimedia industry specializing in voiceover, audio production and editing. It was never my intention to start a career in radio or voiceover, however while attending college for Radio and TV, I was taking a radio performance class and the music director for the radio station asked me when I planned to audition for an on air position and the rest as they say, is history!
My Studio Equipment
My studio is equipped with a Focusrite audio interface and an AKG large diaphragm condenser microphone. I use Soundforge on my DAW and I have both Mac and PC platforms that I use for post-production. I recently added Source Connect-Now as an option for recording as well.
I have experience editing with various DAW's to include, Soundforge, Audacity, Cool Edit, Sound Edit, and Pro Tools.
I also have a relationship with 3 other studios here in San Diego. Invincible Productions, Studio West and Cory Verner productions. Cory focuses on producing audiobooks. Of course I will travel to any studio a client has a relationship with provided I can get there by car.
A significant portion of my career was spent as a multimedia developer where I designed and developed assets, lessons, marketing materials, videos, and sales aids on many different platforms. I was able to provide my experience as voice over talent on any of those projects that required it and I also oversaw production teams ranging from 4 to 25 designers and developers in the last 4 years I was employed in the multimedia industry. The most fun I had over the years included working for 7 years at KSDS Jazz 88 where I served as both on-air and operations staff which led to my voiceover career. I did leave the multimedia industry to work in the healthcare industry where I spent 3 1/2 years working in a Surgery department at a local level 1 trauma hospital. During that time frame my voiceover career began to flourish again and I'm now in a position to devote more time working in the voiceover industry.
