My Voice Experience

Admittedly, I am fairly new to doing voice overs but I have done some work for the book trailer company COS (Circle Of Seven) Productions and some narration for educational videos.

My Training

The closest to training I've ever received for voice acting is virtually all music related. I've done different voices for my band and solo music projects. I've sung live with other bands since I was 10 and received vocal lessons so I understand the importance of enunciation and being able to project.

My Studio Equipment

Recording software: Reaper
Digital mastering software: iZotope's Ozone 5.

Microphone: MXL 4000 Multi-Pattern Studio Condenser

Additional Skills

Although I am fairly green to the whole voice acting experience, I am confident in my abilities. Plus, whatever the project is, I work hard at getting it "just right." I am dedicated, flexible, and love to collaborate and exchange ideas in which to make the end product better.

Also, since music is my passion, I can write music tailored to the project. I can write in different genres such as dixieland, horror movie soundtracks, various kinds of rock, reggae, blues, jazz, classical, metal, punk, experimental, circus music, etc. Also, I can write music similar to Tom Waits, Mr. Bungle, Mike Patton, and Danny Elfman's movie soundtracks in the 90's.
