My Studio Equipment

I own a home studio. Consisting of Pro Tools LE (MBox), Mac, AKAI MPC 2000, Moog 60, Roland XP-10, Reason, Piano, Guitars (acoustic/electric), Marshall Amp,KRK Monitors, Blue microphone.

Additional Skills

I started off as a background singer for Quincy Jones, at the age of 15. Singing has been my main profession since.

I got into doing voice over work, because one of the talents to singing behind someone else, is to be able to alter your voice to enhance the sound. I used to imitate characters on TV, and nail the impersonations so well, that I would place phone calls to my friends, using the voice I just copied, and completely fool them into thinking I was someone else. Even fooled my Mom, and she does voice over too!

I could say a lot more, but that's what the internet is for. Research. All I can say is that I'm good at what I do, and I am a professional.

That's all folks!
