My Voice Experience
I have more than 15 years of experience in the professional voice over industry with E-learning and training courses(some for ESL students), commercials, online "explainer" videos, audiobooks, Power Point presentations and testimonials. I’ve recorded projects for national and international companies, schools, radio and TV, including HP, Aramark, Lexmark and Knowbase Networks and am part of the voice team at The McDaniel Group (www.tmgcentral.com) ad agency and studio. I also contribute weekly music reports to WSRV "The River" 97.1 classic rock station in Atlanta and have provided similar reports to stations in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Richmond and Virginia Beach the past decade.
I'm an entertainment journalist and a musician, so I know how to have fun and sound fun, but can also be serious and thoughtful when necessary.
I have a bachelor's degree in mass communication -- where I took several broadcasting and speech classes -- and a master's degree in English, so I am also quite comfortable with academic-related projects.
I've learned media production and the finer points of voice work recording production from a team of radio and recording studio professionals and am adept in the latest version of Audition.
My Studio Equipment
Home studio equipped with Adobe Audition; Blue Yeti Pro mic, pop screen and shock mount.
As a professional writer, my life revolves around deadlines. I can assure you the utmost professionalism and timeliness with your projects. I'm also very flexible and willing to do whatever a customer requires for a project.
