My Voice Experience
I started acting on stage as a child and eventually began making my own movies in the 6th grade. I have always acted in my, and others' films, from that point on. I have been cast as varying roles in countless student films and have done voice-over work for numerous documentaries and narrative films. i have also done voice-work for animation.
I am a teacher and presenter and so I am very comfortable speaking in front of a crowd but can bring that same level of energy and dynamism when speaking in front of a camera or into a microphone.
I attended acting classes in grade school and have basically been on my own since then. I write, direct, act, edit, and compose music for my own films (and for commercial clients).
I have 2 degrees in Film: My B.S. from Missouri State university and my M.F.A. from the University of Utah. I acted continuously during my schooling and have continues to do so since.
My Studio Equipment
I have access to shotgun (short) and lavaliere microphones readily (and can access others upon request). I edit with Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro at home but also know Protools and Avid.
I have taught Intro to Audio and Sound Design before and so I understand the psychology of mixing sound as well as the mechanics of mixing.
I am passionate about storytelling in any form and feel very strongly in favor of education. I was raised by a history buff and share his interest in history. I love anything creative and am a very hands-on person with a working knowledge of home-repair, furniture making, interior design, and film making.
I also have experience in boxing, judo, and am very interested in competition and athletics.
I studies music for 6 years and have a great appreciation for varying forms of music.
Again, I am an experienced teacher so narration work and any type of instructional voice-work comes very easily to me but I am also an experienced actor so the creative aspect and performance involved in commercial TV/ Radio is also a good fit.
