My Training

I've been a musician for over 20 years, playing the trombone, trumpet, drums, and even some guitar and keyboard. I have performed in both live and recorded settings (including a stint as frontman for a hard rock band in the 90's.)

I've been an AV geek all my life, primarily interested in recording and editing. I've been recording my voice since I was 6 years old.

I'm quick on my feet, I "get it," and my instincts are solid. I'm a thinker, writer and a lover of the English language. I have that SNL/SCTV sense of humor and a quick wit.

Relevant education includes:

1979-80 John Herron School of Art
Youth scholarship filmcraft, 2 semesters

1987-88 Daytona Beach Community College
Courses in English, sociology

1988-89 Hyles-Anderson College
Courses in speech, pastoral theology

1990-91 Columbia School of Broadcasting
Certificate for completion of Announcing program

My Studio Equipment

MXL V63M Studio Condenser Microphone, Symetrix 528e vocal processor, M-Audio Mobile Pre, Behringer MS 16 monitors, Soundforge 6.0, SawPro 32, Acidloops, Behringer Eurorack

Additional Skills

After 21 years experience in voicing spots/promos/radio and TV imaging, characters, commercial production, digital editing, copywriting, and radio, I've learned a lot about what works, and a lot about what doesn't.

Having sold both media and non-media product has given me a better understanding of who the ad is talking to and how to convey the message.
