My Voice Experience

I'm the voice you hear on Promos, Commercials and Documentary narrations ... but that's not all, there's also the Internet, audio prompts for equipment used in Medicine, as well as countless devices that make up the growing world of new technologies. Even if you think you know my work, it's quite likely that you've heard me and didn't even know it. Clients include: ABC-TV, NBC-TV, Discovery Channels, SyFy, BBC, PBS, DIVA Channel, TNT, Hallmark Channel, Universal Channel, LEGO, FORD, Volvo, Chevy, Hyundai, Domino's Pizza, Time Warner, Walt Disney World Vacations, Humana Insurance, The Wall Street Journal, HASBRO, HairClub, Cadillac, and Land Rover, to name just a few.

My Training

Three decades of national and international commercial campaigns and documentary programs have been the ultimate training to polish my craft.

My Studio Equipment

The meat and potatoes are: MKH-416 shotgun mic, D.W. Fearn Mic pre, Telos Zephyp ISDN codec. More info available upon request.

With the vast improvements in broadcast audio and the advent of surround sound, audiences have become more sophisticated in that they expect more from the sound of what they're watching, and so have producers. So delivering a high-resolution, professional voice track is that much more critical. The equipment here would make a great addition to an engineer’s dream list, utilizing the virtues of both digital and analogue technologies, keeping the signal path as clean and short as possible. Our studio consistently meets the uncompromising demands of our agency and network clients.

Rest assured that this is not a makeshift work space! The studio has been constructed with the latest sound blocking and absorbing materials, designed to assure perfect acoustics, since there's much to be said about the "sound" of a room besides the caliber of the equipment that's used in it! Having always had an interest in the recording world and having worked as a swing production engineer in the eighties, the studio is not a novelty but a second home.
