My Voice Experience

I started my voice career in 1991 when I was a Port Lecturer/Presenter for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. I did announcements, video voice over for shipboard presentation etc. In 2004-05 I did character voices for Louisiana Lottery Commercials. In 2009 I did 2 audio books for Dr Bobby Smith (Visions of Courage and The Will to Survive). With those 2 books I did all of the narration, editing, mixing and mastering.

My Training

Much of my training in the recording studio arts has been hands on experience. I learned the art of voice acting by doing it. Having been a musician all of my life I started in studios in New Orleans at age 16. When I was in the cruise industry I was often told that I had a very good voice for narration and public speaking hence the jobs I had aboard cruise ships (cruise director, port lecturer, announcer, MC etc). I had the privilege of doing 2 audio books for Dr Bobby Smith in 2009 and learned hands on the art of narrating and editing those books. I own a recording studio at the present time and would like to get back into doing something I love to do.

Additional Skills

I have extensive experience in the recording sciences. My studio is capable of doing everything within a project; from voice over narration to mixing, mastering, clean up, writing, arranging etc. I can also provide these same services to clients for work done outside of my studio if required.

I have years of experience working with the public having spent 10 years in the cruise industry and 4 plus years in the hotel industry on land. My main focus is to work with a client in order to achieve absolute satisfaction. For me, it's about the project no matter how big or small. Excellence is not just a word, it's a way of doing business.
