My Voice Experience

I began my voice-over career as the overnight DJ on Jet 107.7 (WRJT-FM) in Middle Tennessee, where I also learned radio promo production. I continued as a radio DJ on the Armed Forces Radio Network (AFRN). While on AFRN, I honed my skills at post-production (and well as refining my voice). I've done several local commercials as well as narration of training films for the U.S. Navy and the Department of Defense.

My Training

Although I've had no formal education in voice overs, I did have acting classes while in High School with the Cookeville Performing Arts Center (Tennessee) and was involved in several acting and music productions throughout high school. Most of my ability, however, came from "hands-on" experience while working in radio.

Additionally, I attended Berklee College of Music, where I majored in Music Production. This included training in spotting sound to film, sound design, recording engineering, and music production.

I also worked for 2 years at "The Shed" (a full featured recording studio in Rock, United Kingdom), which was owned and operated by a former BBC Recording Engineer.

...various drum/percussion/instrument mics from Audix, Shure, and Behringer.

Instruments:
* Numerous synthesizers, samplers and drum machines (both hardware and software) for creating original music backing tracks and soundbeds.
* Gibson Les Paul guitar

Additional Skills

I spent 24 years in the military (U.S. Navy), which gives me specialized knowledge of military jargon. This is especially helpful when doing voiceovers for military-based narration or commercials.

Additionally, I am capable of producing custom music from my studio for any projects that need it. I also have access to an extensive list of musicians for additional instrumentation that may be beyond my capabilities.
