Guy next door. Often remarked upon as sexy.

Voice Description

Warm for narrations yet authoritative. Sort of your next door neighbor. I would say that it lends itself more to narrations and books on tape. Yet, I can easily do commercials and other "broadcast" types of work.

My Voice Experience

I started in radio in 1958 while in high school. Thereafter, in college I worked full time at WKCT Radio in Bowling Green, KY, KMED Radio and Television in Medford, OR, WVLK and WLAP Radio in Lexington, KY, WKDA Radio in Nashville, TN where I had an all night country d.j. show while in law school at Vanderbilt University. I also worked at WSIX radio and television at that time. While in radio and television, I had d.j. shows as well as often acting as booth announcer for the commercials on that day's log. Since then (1973) I have practiced law in Nashville, TN and in federal courts around the southeast. I recently decided to retire from my law practice and direct my energies toward voice over. I took a voice over refresher course here in Nashville about a year ago. Most recently, I have been doing books on tape for the Nashville Library for the Blind. I have also done station breaks and a few commercials for two local radio stations.

My Training

I have a BA in History from the University of Kentucky and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Vanderbilt University. As indicated previously, during these endeavors I worked at various radio and t.v. stations. While so employed, I not only did d.j. work in radio and weekend sports on t.v. I also did booth announcing (commercials, station breaks, upcoming events, etc.) and worked on my own projects.

My Studio Equipment

My microphone is a Samson R21S with a Sterling audio pop filter. The software I am using is INport Deluxe. I employ a TASCAM US-144 USB audio with MIDI interface and, of course, my earphones. I record to my Dell computer hard drive and then convert to mp3 for transfer on line or to CD.

Additional Skills

As indicated, my BA in history, J.D. in law and twenty-five years of law practice give me some perspective when doing narrations or books on tape. While serving in Vietnam in 1966-67, I wrote several stories about the fighting ability of the Montagnards of the Central Highlands which were published in both the New York Times and the Washington Post. As general counsel to five different Commissioners of Safety for the State of Tennessee (Tennessee Highway Patrol and Tennessee Bureau of Criminal Identification)under four governors, I gained a unique knowledge of law enforcement from the inside which gives me some insight when doing narration related to that field.
