My Home Base

, Australia

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I do a believable cultured English or American accent. Also a wide range of character voices- Australian Aboriginal, Middle Eastern "camel driver", educated Indian, over-the-top Politician or Union official etc. I write and speak comedic lines well.

My voice is heard in many Australian Cities on Station ID's, ads and such.

I do a very good phone/live Radio interview. My diction is very clear and well delivered, similar to current Australian ABC Radio and Television presenters. Demo's available on request on all the above.

My Voice Experience

Amongst other things, I am a career Musician and I play many instruments- Brass, Guitar, Bass etc. I sing well and still perform regularly.

I also produce Music, video and design artistic CD covers and such.

I have over 3,000 Radio commercials to my credit, along with considerable writing experience.

I am well versed in Australian/Westminster Law and and I write case briefs and other Legal documents for various Clients at times.

I am an Electro-acoustic Engineer with many years of live sound, Studio production and design experience and know Asia, the USA and Europe quite well, having worked there a lot. I have a good knowledge of current World Affairs and Australian Politics.

My Training

My knowledge of Voice-overs came from practical experience at a time when all of the Radio and TV voice-over jobs were "seat-of-pants" performances. I watched the best and how they did it and eventually learned and got work, either in Radio/TV or live music and entertainment.

This has given me what I believe is a unique insight into the industry. I am very versatile. I work best alone with a good script.

I have been a member of VOICE 123 several times in the past few years.

My Studio Equipment

I have a full compliment of microphones including AKG, Rode`, Shure etc. My studio is equipped with three phantom-powered high quality condenser Microphones, a good Behringer low noise pre-amp mixer(30 channel), Jorgen 8" 2 way monitors, a range of excellent power amps, full compliment of inboard and outboard effects and a full suite of ADOBE production programmes. 2 Large dual core desk-tops, Storage- 4 T's. 2 independent studio set-ups.

I also produce video in the larger Studio- 80cm. HITACHI monitor, Avid programmes (News-cutter etc.)

Outstanding acoustic engineering treatment in the recording room- effective Bass trap, specially designed wave form interruption, 90% absorbency with controllable re-introduced reflective surfaces.

Range of Drum sounds and programmes (ZOOM, ALESIS etc.), Roland JV90 synthesiser(Excellent string sounds), other keyboard and sounds.

Additional Skills

I have an extremely wide ranging and detailed knowledge of Herbal medicine and treatments. I grow my own herbs....yes, the Legal ones only! Complex Latin and botanical names are no problem, instruction video s on such subjects are OK.

My library is over 2,000 hard copy volumes and voluminous digital material, covering many subjects and disciplines.

I can converse with anyone on almost any subject. Worldly and well educated, I do the "Corporate" thing well.

I am often called on in Asia to advise on Australian and Western Politics, business and Law.
