My Voice Experience

I have been told my whole life that I "have a voice for radio". This was meant as a compliment. My voice has been described as rich, warm, and professional. Over my career in IT, I focused much attention on training the users of my projects and software. I created many training assets using Camtasia to create training videos with my voice over the top. I created and taught many training classes that I delivered both in-person and remotely using web-meeting tools like Webex. I have made many presentations. In short, I am comfortable speaking and teaching.

Also, my daughter says that I read stories to her better than anyone she has ever heard!

My Training

I have two bachelor's degrees:
- BA, English Literature, University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
- BBA, MIS emphasis, University of Wisconsin - Milwaulkee

As far as VO training, I spent several months with an experienced VO Talent and Coach, Terry Daniel, of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Terry worked with me to create my demos.

My Studio Equipment

I have an AT-2020 USB microphone; I use Twisted Wave software on a MacBook Pro. I have used Camtasia in my prior job.

Additional Skills

As I described above, I have written and created many training assets. I think in terms of outlines that help students understand where they are and where they are going. I believe that I could assist with asset creation and writing if the subject is a technical or professional one.
