Guy next door, warm, calm, comforting, informative, professional
I offer a broadcast-quality product with super-fast (often same-day) delivery. I am happy to have a directed session via Skype, phone patch, Source Connect, or ipDTL.
I love to fit a character, whatever that character might be. I can do character voices, articulate voices, several North American accents. I can be silly, brooding, warm, compassionate, masculine, authoritative, inspirational, instructional. Especially for animations and video games, I can do gruff voices, evil voices, and a range of characters. I can do guy next door, southern, and I can definitely do redneck. Need me to mimic something? Let me give it a shot.

My Voice Experience
I provided a voice over for my first series of radio commercials in 1992 at the age of seventeen. I was acting in a professional theater in Irving, Texas, and an audience member (who happened to be a professional audio producer with his own studio) loved a character I was playing, and thought the voice would be perfect for a radio commercial series. I've been hooked ever since.
I continued with theater for a few more years, until being a husband and father necessitated I pursue a more lucrative career. I spent the next 18 years of my life as a technical writer, professional computer/network technician and website developer; then two years as Creative Director of a marketing department. During that time I had many opportunities to record a radio commercial here-and-there, and especially produce in-house telephone menu recordings; training, explainer and instructional videos; and recorded presentations.
Also, for more than a year, I produced CDs from lecture cassettes I received in the mail for a weekly lecture series out of Arlington, Texas. This involved a lot of conversion, normalization, time and cleanup. That's when I fell in love with Cool Edit Pro 2.0. I've been using that software, now Adobe Audition CC 2015, ever since.
In 2015, I started a full-time in Voice Over and built "Fort Silence Studio" - my own professional recording studio.
I am free to record at flexible times, I'm easy to work with, and I take direction well. I provide a fast turnaround, and don't call a project "finished" until the client is pleased with the work. I don't miss deadlines, and I'll do everything I can so I can always say that with a clear conscience.
I enjoy working on wide variety of projects. I'm always happy to submit a sample or audition for your particular needs. I look forward to working with you!
