My Voice Experience
My voice has been heard on thousands of commercials, radio programs, documentaries, training videos, and IVR prompts.
I've studied with Susan Blu, Pat Fraley and Nancy Wolfson (full course) among others. I'm also a veteran audio production professional, sound designer and audio restoration specialist.
My Studio Equipment
Super quiet VOCAL BOOTH with silent ventilation. Mac and PC. Pro-Tools 10, SawStudio, Vegas, Sound Forge 9, Word2WAV. Mics: Neumann TLM103, AKG Perception 220, Sennheiser 421, Audio Technica AT2020. Preamp: Grace M101. Lynx L22 professional sound card. Many audio capabilities including RX3 Advanced sound restoration.
I have hired and directed voice talent for more than 20 years and know the dynamics and challenges of working on both sides of the studio glass. My voice has been described as real, friendly, believable, authoritative, warm, credible, unique, intimate, sincere, convincing, compelling, smooth, dramatic, fresh, believable, credible, and natural. It's extremely consistent. I'm regularly asked to match material I recorded years ago for e-learning, explainer videos and IVR. My voice has a certain quality that cuts through well in a mix with music and SFX. And engineers have remarked how it has the rare quality to sound natural/believable at varispeed settings.
