My Voice Experience

I have enjoyed recording a few different styles of TV commercials. Ranging from used car sales, to public service announcements. It's always interesting to hear direction from the producers to see how they have envisioned the read and then expressing their vision with my voice.

My Training

I have been training with professional VO coach Curt Hawkins. I'm really enjoying smoothing out the rough edges and putting a polish on my craft.

I was involved in speech and drama in high school and performed in several musicals and plays. My favorite was playing Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof.

I became very comfortable in front of the microphone while working for a mobile DJ service for 10 years. While doing this I learned a lot about amplifiers, mixers, microphones, speakers, and other equipment.

My Studio Equipment

I am recording with Studio One recording software, through a sE Electronics sE2200a II large diaphragm microphone and PreSonus AudioBox22 interface.

Custom built sound booth for a very clean quiet recording.

Finished files sent through a high speed cable internet connection.

Additional Skills

I take direction easily and am open minded on how the client would like the piece to sound. I'm usually fun and easy going, but I definitely have a serious business side as well. My personality makes me a well rounded voice over artist.

For the last 20 years I have been in the customer service field. This has trained me to be organized and a good listener. I have always enjoyed educating my customers and helping them with their needs.
