My Voice Experience

U.S. Army 1990 to 1993- Briefing of military benefits to groups of 150 to 300 soldiers on Fort Benning Army post. These briefings were also recorded and replayed for those who were not present.

U.S. Army 1993 to 1994 - News Anchor for Fort Benning Television, and recording news breaks on local NBC News affiliate's station WLTZ. I also did field reporting 'stand-ups' and original voice-on-tape (VOSOT) articles and I wrote copy for the recorded military news breaks.

1993 to 1998 - News reporter/videographer by CBS affiliate, WRBL, Columbus, GA. Within 2 years I was editing and then producing news breaks.

1996 to 2000 I wrote and voiced commercial radio advertisements for Love Life Ministries, a church in Phenix City AL.

2006 to current - I am a member of the Workforce Management team at Cbeyond, an Atlanta, Georgia-based communications company. I record fresh IVR emergency messages specific to technical issues impacting our customers. I am also the audio voice talent for the Emergency Response team, responsible for announcing building evacuations.

My Training

I completed the Army Broadcaster's correspondence course in April, 1993.

I graduated Columbus State University in 2000. My Associate of Applied Science degree is in Computer Science with focus on computer programming languages.

My Studio Equipment


I use the Spark, cardioid, condenser microphone, manufactured by the Blue Corporation.

I use AudioBox, a hardware-to-PC interface manufactured by the PreSonus Corporation.

AdioBox outputs into my Peavey Workstation EQ preamp and Peavey studio monitors.

I use Studio One, version 2, non-Linear software equipment for editing voice-overs

Additional Skills

My first experience with controlling and developing my voice was as a singer (and bassist) during my high school and early college years.

I also cherish the experiences following a series of cassette tape recordings sent to my wife and son while I was a U.S. Army soldier serving in the Republic of Korea. The recordings were a mix of a'capella songs and motivational encouragement segments designed to ease the pain of being apart. The impact those recordings had was surprising. They were widely circulated among the extended family. Once I returned home, many 'command performances' were requested!
