My Voice Experience
I am an English major with an extensive vocabulary and I have been in public communication all of my adult life. I have written and delivered many presentations, some voice-overs and numerous television commercials and videos.
My clients include Chrysler Corporation, First National Bank, Chapparel Boats, John R Wood Realtors, Redenbaugh Billiards, Fisherman's Village in Estero,Fl., Eagle Creek Country Club in Naples, Fl. and others.
I have also done videos for Lee Memorial Hospital, Ft. Myers,Fl, Hideaway Beach Club, Placido Harbour and "Fun In Naples".
As you can see, my experience in professional voice work is both varied and extensive. I am confident I can meet any voice-over challenge my client presents.
I am a graduate of Furman University and Southeastern Seminary with BA and M Div. degrees. I was an English major with minors in psychology and philosophy in college. Then in Seminary I received special training in public speaking. communication and counseling, as well as theology.
During my graduate years I studied at two mental hospitals so that I could better understand the human personality and interpersonal dynamics, both of which are essential to effective communication...whether public or personal.
In addition, I have completed workshops in Neuro-linguistic programming, transactional analysis. psycho-drama and acting in television commercials.
My Studio Equipment
I have a home studio that is sound proofed, a Rode microphone (with shock mount), an Audiobox Presonus pre-amp, Sennheizer Headphones, two Bose monitors, a new Toshiba laptop with Windows 8, a Galaxy S4 cellphone, a Galaxy notebook and I record and edit primarily with Audacity software. Also, I am willing to go to any nearby studio if necessary.
I am a trained military officer (2nd Lt. Army Reserves) and an excellent athlete, so I understand the importance of teamwork and the value of carrying an assignment to its completion. I am a team player; cooperative, supportive, creative, disciplined, assertive when needed and committed to my goals. I work well under pressure and can meet objectives in a short period of time.
I am an experienced salesman. So I know how to sell an idea or product. And I understand that in the selling process listening to my clients needs, wants and desires is critical to my success.
