Voice Description

My voice is very flexible; I spent seven years as a radio DJ broadcasting a few different styles of music, which required different intonations and inflections depending on format. I also am known to do various accents (British or Irish mostly) and cartoon-type voices. My natural voice is more warm and deep, good for radio and narrations, but I can also do higher pitched voices for effect.

My Voice Experience

I have a great deal of experience with voice work. I started with college, doing on-air DJ work as well as narration for projects; I also produced a radio news feature on presidential elections, featuring live interviews with fellow students and selection of various pieces of background music. While in the radio industry professionally, I talked on air for my shift and then did a lot of production work and commercials; everything from smooth and professional 30 or 60 second spots for car dealerships to wacky and fun commercials for bars and restaurants. I now do a radio shift on the Berklee College of Music's internet radio station while enrolled there, and have conducted and produced a two hour interview with famous bass player Marcus Miller.

My Training

I began doing voice over work in college, starting my Mass Communications degree and working in the school radio station and doing various projects that involved narration. When I was in radio professionally after graduation, I did everything from on-air broadcasts to complete commercial productions, including voice, music, and sound effects. I am currently enrolled at the Berklee College of Music, where I have not only done other voices and narrations for fellow student's projects, but have sung on various recordings as well.

My Studio Equipment

I currently run a Pro Tools-based setup in my home, running through a Digi 002 Rack Unit into an Apple computer. I can record into Pro Tools, Logic, or Garageband and edit accordingly. To record my voice, I usually utilize an AKG-414 condenser microphone.

Additional Skills

In addition to the above-mentioned skills, I also have training in recording engineering, as I spent a year at a school learning studio techniques and methods. I also am skilled at copywriting and correction, which I had to do quite often in school and on the job while in the radio industry.
