matter-of-fact, persuasive, memorable, steady.
As a character actor, I have a deep, sensuous voice, for the midnight soul affect, (...baaabby). I also have an authoritative, commanding tone as well. I can play the mellow "solid as a rock" father figure. Or the creepy voice on the phone...What sets me apart, is the research I put into every line, and roll.
I am well read, with an informed delivery. I have an articulate, educated, mid-western accent, but can play a variety of dialects.
As for comedy, my timing is natural, and spontaneous.

My Voice Experience
I have had an accidental, amateur career. I was a musician in my early days. (I was not the singer - please refer to the "available for jobs" list.) But had more than a few VO promos for small venues. (These in exchange for gigs, for trade or even for beer.) This led to a relationship with local radio personalities. I was the preferred interviewee prior to an event.
After ten years in the local music scene, I lost my passion for it. But my friends in radio continued to call me, usually an "aside" or "color commentary" on whatever current trend the younger rockers were up to.
Later, by chance, a sports reporter from a local television station heard me talking casually about the local sports team, and struck up a conversation. He invited me to "call in" to the late night sports show. I became a regular. ( I did not appear on camera.)
Each of these recording industry professionals commented on my natural ability, and urged me to follow this path. I decided to pursue a professional career, and have diligently researched the craft.
I hold a degree in RTVF, and I am pursuing a second one in communication.
I am familiar with Adobe Audition, Adobe Soundbooth, Avid Media Composer, Pro-Tools, Garage Band, and Audacity.
I am well-versed in most codecs and formats, and can deliver in both file-based and tape/cd/dvd.
My Studio Equipment
I own the shure sm57 dynamic microphone, the MXL 990 Condenser Microphone, and the Shure MX183 Omni-Directional Lavalier microphone.
I have access to a small soundbooth, and record digitally on an HP desktop computer, into an Avid Media Composer 5.
I am familiar with mastering techniques.
I have an intimate knowledge of baseball and hockey (the games, more than stats and figures).
I also have a good working knowledge of astro-physics.
I am familiar with airplane parts manufacturing, and the house-hold furniture moving industry.
I know alot about driving trucks, driving taxis, and driving heavy equipment. I know a little about high-steel, deep sea fishing and golf.
I have worked in the hospitality industry, as well as a satelite-dish installation tech.
