My Voice Experience
Film, industrial and commercial experience includes: Voice over, sound effects, foley, music editing and narration on live presentations, CD-Rom/DVD product demonstrations, technical training videos.
Starting in 1989 I began working with Rebo HDTV in New York as a free lance audio producer. Among the post production recording, editing and ADR work I created and performed the vocal effects for masked revelers in "Fools Fire" also know as the Hop Frog, a High definition TV production for Julie Taymor. Later working as Training Manager for Solid State Logic, Inc. I produced demonstration media and made live presentations for SSL's digital production systems at trade shows, studios and during client technical training programs.
In addition to live productions for artists like U2. I have audio production credits for George Harrison's "Live in Japan" double CD and production mixing credits and for Walt Disney Imagineering productions in California and Florida.
Currently I'm based on Cape Ann, just 30 miles from Boston and I have a complete voice and music recording studio in my home. My focus is on developing my voice over and post production business. I'll consider all types of voice over work and I'm willing to travel.
I have attended as trainer or been the technical producer of numerous sessions at commercial recording studios and post production facilities all over the USA.
