My Voice Experience

I started out in the 80's singing jingles and doing voice overs for Bob's Western Wear, moved into funny commercials for a store named "Computer Stuff", did a two year series of Addy winning spots for Public Service Gas and Electric Company of New Mexico. They were Almanac spots in which I would strum a guitar and talk about service and safety issues. Produced many Addy winning spots for "West Coast Sound" in New Mexico and performed vocal on 1st place Addy winner for the company in the 80's. In the last 5 years have read serious audio books about freedom and religion and today produce and voice announce projects for Michael Shermer of Skeptic magazine.

My Training

BS in Electrical Engineering from University of New Mexico, owned and operated largest recording facility in New Mexico since 1966. Started my recording experiences in the 60's at Norman Petty Studios [of Buddy Holly fame] in Clovis New Mexico. I have produced music projects for Motown, RCA, Capitol, King, Starday, CMH, MCA, and mixed over 30 documentaries for Discovery, History, Turner Broadcasting, Learning, and PBS channels. I have voiced spots for United Way and Wounded Warrior area campaigns. I have spent my life working with music, voice and sound.

My Studio Equipment

I have 2 studios with Yamaha 02R digital mixers, recording on Sonar with MOTU sound cards and Focusrite mic preamps and monitoring on Tannoy Reveal surround sound monitoring systems. We have Nuemann U87's, and a selection of Shure, AKG, Sennheiser, and Studio Project microphones. We do advertising, custom music, audio books, ADR, and ISDN recording.

Additional Skills

I am a music composer, producer and guitarist. I have spent my life helping clients happily achieve their final goal in every area of sound production. I started on 1/4 mono Ampex tape machines and have worked on every new platform since. I know I don't want to go back to razor editing! I produced and recorded the last 7 CD projects on the late legends Merle Travis and Joe Maphis....both with Grammy nominated albums. The only career I have had is sound, production, and managing it!
