My Voice Experience

I recently annouced for the Season Premier of the nationally broadcast TBS TV show "10 Items or Less" in 2008. I worked directly with cast members and New York the event staff, along with radio station 96.3, QFM 96, to present and MC the evening's activites.

Currently, my voice can be heard along with current recordings with Farmers New World Life Insurance during hold times for certain incoming calls. These will run indefinitely.

I have professional commmercial experience with the following:
Columbus Local News, AmericanCommunitiesNewspapers, ColumbusLocalJobs, The Other Paper, Voice overs for local radio: CD101, WCOL 92.3, NPR 90.5, 94.7 WSNY. With all of these radio spots or online commercials, I produced and recorded all commercials in house myself, and also added music or sound effects when required.

I am a classically trained musician since 1990, and studied music composition at Ohio University.

I have also announced for over 150+ weddings, locally and within Ohio and surrounding states. From 2000-2001 I was a co-announcer for the Ohio University Marching Band.

I have performed narrative voice-overs for film, independent music recordings, movie scores as well as OSU student films and Independent Films throughout Ohio.

My Training

Besides studying independently, I have studied Voice and Speech at Ohio University from 1998-2001. I had student experience in public speaking and performance throughout this period of time, as well as public events from 1998 to the present.

I studied Music and Music Composition at Ohio University from 1998 to 2001, as well as Radio Broadcasting and Communications in 2001 at Ohio University.

Since then, I have been actively performing voice overs and have learned through experience and in a 3 years position as an insurance customer support advocate. This allowed me to pick up various accents and fine tune them to sound authentic and realistic.

My Studio Equipment

I currently use Apple Mac Mini, Duo Core 2GB computer with Logic Studio 9, Adobe Audition and occasionally Apple's Garage Band. I use a Mackie 8-Channel Mixer, A Presonus Blue Tube PreAmp, along with an AKG condenser and MKG brand microphones for my main source of audio work.

Additional Skills

I can easily perform, record, mix and produce nearly any type of voice over necessary, complete with original or supplied music backgrounds if desired. This involves all produced material in house.

I can also write commercial jingles and send them out within a very short period of time, typically one week or sooner for large projects, but within a few hours for short voice-over projects. Let me know how I can help you!
