My Voice Experience
Although, I list the start of my career in voice over as 2010, my journey into voice over work began in the seventies when I double majored in both Theatre and Speech Communications - Mass Media from 1973 - 1977 at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. My original goal was to be a news announcer but my focus quickly shifted to acting.
For over 35 years, I have performed a wide variety of roles and several leads and narration for stage and, also some TV commercials (Ohio Lottery - Reasons to Play”), radio (“Uncle Bob’s Story Hour” Internationally Syndicated in the 80’s) and film.
May 19th, I finished work as a camera intern for the full length feature film “Lilith” that is now in post production and is due to be released in the fall of 2010 produced by Nehst Film Studios which also completed the requirements for my internship with Nehst Studios. Since the fall of 2009.I have been employed ongoing as talent by the Mt Sinai Skills Simulation Center of Case Western Reserve University.
This year alone, I performed as principle talent in 3 industrial training films (playing doctors and patients) and just recently completed 3 days of intensive training for a 2 year project that requires that I record and deliver 2 voice tracks via email each month for the next 2 years. This training included recording and delivering mp3 files using the Olympus DM-420 Digital Stereo Voice Recorder which I have exclusive home use of for the next 2 years.
I have been involved in performing arts and public speaking for over 35 years as both an actor and director and community activist. I double majored in both Theatre and Speech Communications - Mass Media in the 1973 - 1977 at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.
At Case, I studied several different vocal methods and techniques in both departments including the Lessac vocal training system, phonetics, breathing and have had several group and private vocal instructors for voice for the stage and for singing.

In the last 3 years, I have taken several courses in Digital Cinematography at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio where I learned to to record, edit and began to acquire equipment, software and expertise.
My Studio Equipment
My home studio has the following recording equipment. A MacBook Pro, a PowerMac G4, a IBM Lenovo Thinktank, an Olympus DM-420 Digital Stereo Voice Recorder.
It has 2 dynamic Microphones. One AKG Perception 120 microphone and 1 vintage Shure Microphone. I use Phillips SBC HN110 Headphones.
I have and can edit using Audacity, FFMPEGX, Quicktime 10, Soundtrack Pro and Olympus Snority software.
I can record edit and deliver finished soundtracks in several formats with music and special efects if required and can create royalty free music in Garageband.
I also have access to a private professional audio studio near my home.
For the last 11 years, I have been a corporate events manager working seasonally and at will at Cleveland Browns Stadium, the Cleveland I-X Center and the Cleveland Convention Center and have heard and seen hundreds for corporate video and audio presentations of all kinds.
I have also been working seasonally for the Cleveland International Film Festival as a theatre Op and Advance Sales Associate for the last 3 years.
This year, I decided to pursue voiceover work as a career. I offer a fresh yet very seasoned and versatile voice to the voiceover marketplace and more importantly, to your brand. My web marketing and business development model is under construction but my voice over production and exporting is ready to role! (pun intended)
