Voice Description

I've been actively involved in Trinidad media and arts for over fifteen years working in both television radio and as a singer as well.
I have had the opportunity to be creative in a variety of areas from news and current affairs programming to on air music programmes.
I have also voiced both singing and spoken word radio and television commercials, telephone greetings, features and a host of other projects for a range of clients from banks and insurance companies, herbal health products, home and garden supplies wine makers to name a few.
My singing and speaking voice has been described as warm, clear smooth and reassuring, and some may even say sexy.
My vocal range stretches from that of a mid baritone to a high tenor which allows for tremendous flexibility in voice work.

My Training

I hold a Bachelors degree in Government from the University of the West Indies and a Certificate in Public Administration.
My classical vocal training began at the age of 17 under the tutilage of Opera singers Lorna Mae-Mayers and the late Chesterton Ali.
I have performed throughout the caribbean and was one of the local cast in the travelling performance of Porgie and Bess.
I was also proud to release my own album of christmas selections called "Ray of Hope" in 2006 it recieves tremendous airplay during the holiday season.

I was trained as a Journalist by retired B-B-C journalist/features producer David Tindall.
I have worked as one of the local correspondents for the B-B-C Caribbean Service in Trinidad for over 8 years.
I have served in a variety of creative capacities from my first job as a cub reporter working my way up to serve as a senior producer/weekend anchor for the state television station and then on to the head of news position for a Smooth Jazz station in Trinidad for 2 and a half years.
I followed this with a stint as the program director for a Talk radio station which alowed my creativity to blossom further not just having to voice commercials and promos but now having to write produce and supervise quality production of these show elements.

My Studio Equipment

Funny story I built a mini recording studio at home becasue my wife who is also in the business was really tired of having to drive to her radio station on a weekend to do the news.
But it turns out that what I built for her at home sounds better than the equipment she uses at work.
It's a simple set up digital audio editing software, an external sound card, studio quality microphone mounted in a proper shockguard,patched into a small powered mixer.
Just enough to get the big jobs done at a small price.
But it also helps to have friends with more gear than you do so I have access to some of the top studio's in the caribbean which can be incorporated into the various projects should the need arise.

Additional Skills

I love and am very passionate about music and quality sound at that.
I believe that my voice is a blessing and a gift and I use it as best I can to serve.
