Voice Description

I can do amazing things with my voice. My normal speaking tone has been described as "classic", authoritative, rich, deep, projected, and powerful. However I can range in pitch from a squirrel on helium to Barry White with a cold, and everything in between. I can also do "generic" Australian, British and a little bit of New York or Southern accents. Several generic ethnic accents are also in my repertoire. I hear all the time that I "have a voice that should be on radio."
One of my best "characters" is the typical big voice radio announcer. Some twists on this are lounge singer, monster truck show announcer and super hero. I can do deep and sultry or high and squeaky. In short, I'm confident that I can offer you professional, unique, and quality work. Giving you that signature sound your looking for.

My Voice Experience

Since I was a kid, I had known that I could do a great cartoon character voice, but then as I got older and my talents grew I realized that radio or voice over work might have been an easier option. Unfortunately I never had the right opportunities. I developed a hobby as a DJ that later turned into a career. Working with Radio Stations, Charities, and various corporate events, and having spent many years doing live promoting and crowd hyping in the night clubs, I amassed thousands of hours of public speaking and on-the-mic experience. This allowed me to perfect my mic presence, and gave me the kind of vocal tones that many people in the industry dream of.

My Training

I have studied the art of voiceover for nearly a decade.
Beyond that I have completed various training courses, and continue to improve myself and my talent as a voiceover artist thru private coaching.

My Studio Equipment

I have several microphones, but I keep turning to my large diaphragm condenser mics.
I have a scissor arm broadcast mic boom, which holds my shock mounted microphone of choice and a pop filter. I run a blue tube microphone pre-amp. A rack mounted compressor/limiter/gate, and an 8ch mixer, which feeds into a digital recorder, and also my computer. I use Sony Studio headphones for monitoring, giving me precise audio reproduction.

Additional Skills

Not many voice actors have nearly 20 years of behind-the-mic experience. I have a larger imagination than most people, giving me the creative edge that you might be looking for in your voice over project. I am also the co-host of two weekly online radio programs with an international listener base. I interview people of influence, and provide excellent commentary on various subject matter. This has given me even more experience, and a confidence that comes through in all my vocal projects.
