Smooth and authoritative to Animated and lively

Voice Description

My natural voice tends toward two distinct modes. A smooth authoritative baritone suited for young adult and middle age male roles with a measured cadence and slightly grainy quality. The other mode is a medium tenor with a very animated and lively delivery.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My natural voice has very little regional dialect present. I gre up in the boston area and can very easily switch to several dialects from new england. Cambridge, South Boston, Providence, Glouster/Salem, Cape Cod. I also spend a lot of time with family in Virginia and have a pretty convincing "Middle Peninsula" accent.

My Voice Experience

I have done extensive work presenting in a professional capacity and lecturing. I also have done a lot of live aloud reading for both adults and children. I get many complements on the life I bring into the story.

I have no professional voiceover experience... yet.

My Training

BS Mathematics at MIT
MS Applied Mathmatics at UMASS

I have been a singer and instrumentalist for most of my life.

Speaking publicly to large groups, at times several times weekly, has been a large part of my professional career ( software development consulting and training ). In meetings and technical committees (for example the ATSC, the committee which defined Digital television standards) I have frequently used my voice as a tool to influence people to join my camp.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a full recording studio with Pro Tools and quality microphones, though I generally use a SM7B or Beta 87A. Sometimes I use a TLM103, NT1A or AT4040.

These go into a Trident s20 and a Toft ATB24 then into Pro Tools, somtimes I'll use some compression and/or reverb pre-capture as well.

Additional Skills

I have audio engineering skills as well as access to REAL engineers.
