Voice Description

I am an actor and live-stage performer with the ability to do over 350 impressions of famous personalities and carton characters, as well as original character voies of my own. I have a 3-octave voice range from very low to very high (bass to tenor) and can shape my voice to fit most any mood or "feel" desired, from serious to comical, jovial and happy to depressed and sad, warm and friendly to shocking and authoritative. You describe what you want and most likely I can deliver it. I do a variety of announcer-narrator voices. I'm a former radio DJ personality and talk show host. I'm also a singer with the ability to imitate the actual voice or style of many famous singers from pop crooners to rock-N-roll and country music. My voice is very versatile, and I'm very easy to work with and very directable.

My Voice Experience

I have a long and respected career in the media fields of broadcasting, radio, TV, advertising and entertainment. I have been emmployed by 6 radio stations as an air personality and Production Manager. Three of the radio stations had sister TV stations where I have done everything from copywriting and voice work to running camera on live and recorded programs. I've been employed by 4 advertising agencies as Creative Director, and over my career have written, directed, voiced or been on-camera talent for countless thousands of commercials, promo's, and audio-video presentations.

I have performed live on-stage as a stand-up comic,impressionist,ventriloquist and singer in the Midwest region of IIlinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee, as well as Hollywood and Las Vegas. I have written over 30 original songs. My movie credits include the voice of the ape in "The Incredible Shrinking Woman," starring Lilly Tomlin, the part of the Head Aide in Director Bill Girdler's horror film, "The Asylum," and a cameo role in "Abby," a very successful spin-off of "The Exorcist." I have written two published books, a Civil War novel that has receied rave reviews titled, "Call to Arms," and a serious non-fiction book on the U.S. Supreme Court.

My Training

I graduated from a college-preparatory High School, Atherton, in Louisville, KY but didn't attend college choosing instead to pursue the school-of-hard knocks in broadcasting, advertising and entertainment. My more than four decades of on-the-job expereience is worth the equivalent of many college degrees.

My Studio Equipment

I have Cool Edit Pro digital multitrack but primarily use it only for voice recording. Since I don't own a licensed music and sound effects library I usually utilize another studio nearby wth ISDN to do complete productions if desired which will entail paying that studio's fee's.

Additional Skills

My years of experience has made me an excellent commercial copywriter. I write commercials that "sell" as well as entertain. I have received numerous awards and accolades for campaigns and individual spots I've produced.
