Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Faking an accent is not my strong point however adding ENERGY, ANGER, EXCITEMENT, or any mood is both easy and fun for me, and it shows in my audio.

My Voice Experience

I've been doing private gigs and studio work for over 2 years on and off, and 2010 marks my year to take this to a full time and committed business for myself. Quality, fast, and precise are words my past contracts would describe me as.

I've enjoyed doing VO work in many areas of media and have been featured on over a dozen websites, CD-Roms, Radio Ads, Software, and even a teleprompter gig back in my day (press 1 for quality, press 2 for...)...

References available upon request, as well as websites that feature my voice.

My Training

Formally a singer by nature, I've been rocking Karaoke bars since I was a teen so this was a natural transition (Oh yeah, I have a few jingles under my belt too - old but still good).

My training was usually on the stop in the studio and or I took scripts to my vocal coach when I was still learning the ropes.

Also well trained in all the software and hardware needed to create broadcast quality audio (and video, and web).

Now I offer vocal coaching (as a singer) for a few private clients as I grow into the voice over world, thus this has always been somewhat of a passion and I'm more self-taught with a formal polish instead of all school no talent.

My Studio Equipment

Where do I begin?

I have a full fledged media studio here good for all kinds of media and marketing needs. In no particluar order:

Station 1:

VO Booth, 2 Pro mics with preamps, PC, 2 monitors, all the software to edit/mix/master/export.

Station 2:

VO Booth, 3 pro mics with preamps, going into a Mackie mixer, a Motif-8 keyboard (I produce and compose actual music with a partner too), 3 monitors, all going through Cubase and an M-audio sound card (all pro as pro gets).

Station 3:

Simple laptop setup with pro USB mic which I use for remote gigs and or when I need to travel. It's loaded with everything I need to do gigs if I need to be on location with you.

General: Standard studio gear i.e. pop filters, guitars/instruments, music sheets, YEARS worth of our own custom recorded audio/songs/instrumentals which we offer as a bonus with each gig (you get royalty free music with each gig and we compliment you with a dry (no music) version, and our tweaked version with a few effects and a tune under it to bring it home for you.

Whether you need 44.1 stereo 16-bit audio or clean mp3 web files, our studio is an all in one professional marketing stop with audio and web dev. leading the way.
