Voice Description

My voice is warm, smooth and friendly. I have a variety of different reads that I developed during many years of working as a radio/TV commercial announcer. Everything from hard to soft sell, as well as character and cartoon voices. I currently do a lot of narration and ELearning voice-overs for Internet projects. Clients tell me I have an articulate read that doesn't sound affected.

My Voice Experience

I am currently the main on-air TV Weathercaster at a major market televsion station in Calgary but worked for many years as a radio DJ and commercial and promo announcer/producer.

I began doing free-lance voice work as soon as I started working in radio in 1974 and have done thousands of voice-overs for radio and television. Clients include local, reagional and national companies. After moving into television I continued to do voice-over work and currently have my own professional recording studio.

Since 2003 I have been doing more and more Elearning work. The challenge with ELearning is to present the material in a way that the listener easily understands and absorbs it. Knowing how and what to inflect as well as consistency in timing, intonation and cadence are extremely important in ELearning reads.

My Training

I have been continuously employed as an announcer since 1974 and have voiced thousands of projects from commercials to documentaries, corporate videos and ELearning courses. I have a diploma in broadcast journalism and taught radio production and announcing at the university level for 7 years. I am versatile, animated and take direction well.

My Studio Equipment

I have a home studio with professional, best-quality equipment that includes high-end condenser and dynamic microphones and outboard processing gear. Unlike many who set up at home, I have had extensive experience in professional studios both as an announcer and a producer and so I know how to use my gear to get the most out of my voice.

Additional Skills

In addition to voice-over work I also do on-camera hosting. I am on the air 2.5 hours a day, 5 days a week and am completely relaxed and natural in front of the camera. I have appeared on-camera in numerous video productions and have also acted in over twenty movies and television series.

Payment Methods Accepted

• Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders in my local currency
• Wire transfers
