My Studio Equipment
Have produced own half-hour TV program but in conjunction with local professional studio.
On my premises are multi-media equipment capabilities for producing professional q uality audio submissions (as well as video ones, if need be). However, PRODUCTION is NOT my priority. MY FORTE PERTAINS TO VOICE TYPE & RANGE -- AND WRITING.
Lived and served as a US diplomat in Monaco and on the French Riviera as well as in Asia, Central America, Africa and the Middle East. Ergo, quite at ease interacting with people of all social and economic echelons and cultural backgrounds -- from royalty to business persons to world-renowned actors to camel drivers to ecumenical figures (e.g., Catholic and Coptic Bishops) to bazaar shopkeepers.
As composer, had contract with Warner Bros./ Filipacchi in France; my music has been used as theme show music for a Radio Monte Carlo program as well as included in an animated Warner Bros. movie.
I write short stories. I can act.
As an etymology maven, quite obsessed with nuance, word-play, double entendre, syllogism and the like.
