My Voice Experience

I've done scratch voices and the occasional rip-o-matic or industrial for 20+ years as a creative director, copywriter and spot producer, hot on the heels of college radio and TV production. Up till now I was the guy on the other side of the glass, calling the shots and manning the board (which gives me a lot of insight into what my clients need and expect), but have recently gone over to the talent side, with work like...

- AVO presentations for Momemtum Worldwide
- Web video and audiobook AVO for Volvant.com
- Web promos for SnakeOrMouse.com
- Copywriting in radio, video, rich media for innumberable clients over the year

My Studio Equipment

* Window 7 laptop running Audacity and a number of other editing/cleanup softwares
* Portable VO booth
* Shure SM58 with integrated USB preamp

Additional Skills

- Veteran copywriter with radio production experience
- Specializing in radio copy that's sharp, funny, punchy -- from skit-style to monologue/character copy
