My Voice Experience
I took to public speaking like a fish to water... was the playwright, director & narrator for my 3rd grade production of "Alice in Wonderland". I began emceeing concerts and variety shows in high school. I started recording VO for documentaries at my college TV station. As a performing musician, I'm the "on mic" guy for every band I've ever been in.
As a singer and vocal arranger, I've sung and VO'd for numerous jingles and presentations (Red Rocket Studios-Flir Systems, Santa Barbara) I was vocal arranger, singer and featured VO talent in a ---award winning commercial. As the musical director of a music education non-profit, I'm up front in radio & TV interviews, promotional spots and documentaries.
As composer and arranger of jazz-oriented material-often comical-I spontaneously improvise dialog, music & impressions in performance.
BA in Music-voice emphasis. This training gave me much of the depth and resonance that has excited so many sub woofers. In The Trenches since my youth: countless plays and musicals, drama improv groups and jazz improvisation with my voice.
Trained in ensemble direction and conducting. Lead a select mixed vocal group that performs and records in southern California.
My Studio Equipment
Violet Designs and Audio Technica condenser microphones. Soundcraft and Mackie mixers. Can record/edit/mix to Pro Tools, CD, ADAT or direct to hard disc.
Multi-instrumentalist (bass, guitar, keyboards, drums, percussion, brass) and singer from basso profundo (G below the bass clef staff) to tenor (C above middle C). Can write, arrange & perform an entire jingle or comic opera.
Certified California Community College instructor in music: Jazz voice, combo & history, private tutor in bass & voice. Committed to education of children and adults-mainly in the expressive arts. Scat singing is my second language.
I'm happiest when creating on the fly, and have been called "King of the Couplet" for my spontaneous rhyming ability. Want a personalized Limerick? A favorite Christmas song with custom lyrics? I'm your guy!
