My Voice Experience

Shortly after I began working at Buddha Jones, I was given the opportunity to show my editorial skills as a PA. My task was to cut a viral video using storyboards of animated characters. They hadn't found anyone in house that could do a good voice for a specific character so I decided to take it upon myself to recreate that voice.

When I finished the piece they were more impressed with the voice impression rather than my cut. They quickly recognized that I had a knack for impressions and character voices so from then on they began to throw me into a booth and away I went! I've had the opportunity to work on numerous in house projects which include:

Puss In Boots (not yet released)

The Muppets (not yet released)


Happy Feet 2 (not yet released)

Rise of the Guardians (not yet released)

NOTE: All VO/ADR on these projects has been temp with the exception of The Muppets. See the link for the finished version. My voice is the opening monologue

My Training

I've always had a knack for doing character voices, but the company I currently work for, Buddha Jones, has given me the opportunity to explore my voice talents on a professional level. I have become one of the main people they rely on for temp narration, temp VO, and, ADR for many of their motion picture trailers and TV spots.

My Studio Equipment

I have easy access to:

Avid Media Composer
KRK monitors
Protools HD rig with a full compliment of plugins
Mackie 1604 for protools returns (That's the mixer)
Sennheiser 416 shotgun mic
Presonus tube mic pre
ISDN line
Music and Sound Effects library

Additional Skills

I currently work as an assistant editor at a trailer company called Buddha Jones, so I understand concepts and ideas of editing media such as narration, ADR, or VO into a sequence and coupling that with sound effects, music, and video to tell a story. This is a key element to understanding how a voice should sound on certain projects whether it's a light hearted comedy, a suspenseful thriller, or an animated feature.
