My Voice Experience
I'm still trying to earn my first pair of "Bunny Slippers", but I can almost feel the fur between my toes and I'm picking up just the faintest scent of carrots.
I have completed professional VO workshops with Beverly Breemers, and James Alburger and Penny Abshire, and I attended Voice 2008 in Los Angeles.
I have a decade of on stage experience in community theater in productions ranging from "The Tempest" and "All My Sons" to "Harvey" and "Born Yesterday"
I have BA in Philosophy from Cal State University Long Beach.
My Studio Equipment
Home built sound booth.
Alesis Multi-mix 8 USB
Twisted Wave and Audacity Software
I got lucky 41 years ago and haven't mucked it up yet. Raised two kids, neither of whom is a serial killer and who still think I'm an OK guy.
A day job in sales and sales management in the wood business pays the rent, and I have honed my vocal skills in a lifetime of face to face and phone sales.
For nearly ten years I worked one weekend a month as a trainer for adults and teens in a very intense, highly impactive leadership/personal development class.
