My Voice Experience
When I lived in Tallahassee, I went into the local radio station and asked to do commercials in return for a demo tape. The management at WTAL was happy to oblige and I was able to read several commercials and they proudly handed me a cassette tape of my work.
A few months later, a friend of mine was working the night shift at WGLF radio and we worked out a bit during the Winter Olympics where I played his mother who the radio station had sent there on a budget airline, in a budget motel and with no tickets to any of the games.
Currently, I do curtain warmer speeches for a local high school theatre troupe and a professional choral organization. I also emcee the honor chorus presentation locally.
I have recorded podcasts, video narration, and telephone systems.
I live in the Atlanta area and would love to work in any one of the major voice studios downtown.
Extensive theatre work with Little Theatre of Mechanisburg, Allenberry playhouse, People Place in Harrisburg, Tallahassee Little Theatre. I have appeared on stage and as the sound and light director.
My Studio Equipment
Adobe CS 5.5 including Audition and premiere pro.
Blue Snowball condenser microphone.
AT2020 Large diaphragm condenser.
I am a chorus teacher in the Atlanta area and make a living using my voice in that way.
I pride myself on taking care of the client and making sure the client is happy before declaring a project finished.
