My Voice Experience

I have been performing for 30 years as a recording artist (both singing and rapping) and producer. During that time, I've recorded and produced numerous projects including demos for rapper Mossberg (former DJ Quik artist) and actress Lisa Raye during the mid-90s. I also record and produce my own projects and perform the majority of the vocals. Recently, I wrote and performed a voice over for Hthorne Entertainment artist Diamond Jim on his song Planet Earth (a song about global warming). Several songs from my 2007 album, Lessons Of Mass Instruction, showcase my vocals. Snipets are available on iTunes. My vocal (singing) song "Patiently" can be heard in it's entirety on the Hthorne MySpace page. The widget at the MySpace page also includes several instrumental tracks I wrote, performed and recorded. Currently, I am still recording musical artists for Hthorne entertainment.

My Training

I trained in electronic music and production at California State University Dominguez Hills. I'm proficient in most recording and editing programs including SoundForge, Logic, ACID, Reason, Cubase, & ProTools.

The person being recorded can see the engineer and control room and vice versa.

Additional Skills

From 1996 to 2006 I was employed as an administrative law judge for Department of motor Vehicle. In this capacity I recorded the hearing I conducted and had to speak in a clear consistent manner to ensure a good record of the proceeding. I was also responsible for making sure all other parties being recorded did so. I was required to state verbatim complex laws and statues articulately and accurately. Also, I conducted training presentations for many local law enforcement agencies. During these sessions I needed to communicate the information quickly, efficiently, and clearly.
