My Training

I've been a professional and/or amateur actor for nearly 40 years, both on-camera and on stage. I worked with a audio/video production company for over 11 years where I directed voice talent and also served as voice talent. I wrote copy for and produced thousands of radio and television commercials. I conducted well over 5000 telephone interviews, recorded them, and edited the interviewees' voices to create testimonial commercials. I have a Master's Degree in Education, and my undergraduate major was English. I was also an English teacher on the junior/senior high school level. In short, I've been on the "front end" and the "back end" of voiceover!

My Studio Equipment

Mac Mini iOX, Avid Fast Track Solo with ProTools, Rode NT-1A mic. I have experience mixing, normalizing, compressing, etc., though I would not consider myself an "expert" engineer. I can create .wav and .aif files as well as mp3s and mp4s. I do have access to an expert audio engineer, and also some access to a music library.

Additional Skills

I worked with a audio/video production company for over 11 years where I directed voice talent and also served as voice talent. I wrote copy for and produced thousands of radio and television commercials. I conducted well over 5000 telephone interviews, recorded them, and edited the interviewees' voices to create testimonial commercials, for which I wrote the announcer copy. I did other copywriting as well. I have a Master's Degree in Education, and my undergraduate major was English. I was also an English teacher on the junior/senior high school level. In short, I've been on the "front end" and the "back end" of voiceover! I have worked numerous professional and skilled labor jobs; therefore, I have an understanding of the "roles" of many peoples' lives. I can carry on a conversation with just about anyone. I learned to do so in my professional career in testimonial commercial production.
