My Voice Experience
For over 20 years, I have done voice and audio post production for broadcast clients ranging from CNN and HGTV to Focus on the Family, In Touch Ministries, Chevrolet, AT&T and Cartoon Network. Whether I'm delivering information clearly, punching your product in a promo or sitting on the sprawling veranda of a southern plantation calling for Belvedere, my beloved blood hound, I've had a thrilling ride giving voice and personality to characters, campaigns and products on television and radio. I'd love the opportunity to bring something special to your next project.
My formal education began as a Chemical Engineering major at Georgia Tech. (What the heck was I thinking?) I fell in love with music my sophomore year and began pursuing a career as a television composer. One thing led to another and before long I was offering voice and effects work as part of my creative menu. I've never looked back.
I eventually transferred from Tech to Real World University's Hard Knox School of Broadcasting. My eduction there has been thorough and ongoing and I know how to knock out projects efficiently, on time and on budget.
I have had the privilege of contributing to projects that have gone on to win Telly, Addy and Emmy awards.
My Studio Equipment
I work in London, NYC, LA and Atlanta. I have a full commercial studio with both Pro Tools and Logic platforms, numerous microphones (Neumann, Shure, AKG and others) and pre-amps (Neve, API, Avalon, Vintage Tube Pre) As well as mobile rigs with the same software and microphones. I can connect via Source Connect and phone patch. I'm built for efficiency and quick turn arounds.
I have, or have had, a number of interests and hobbies over the years including - but not limited to - general aviation, sailing, fly fishing, photography and theoretical physics. I've read for medical and technical projects and am very comfortable with technical jargon and medical pronunciation.
