My Voice Experience

Paul has many years of experience with credits that include Aetna, Cisco, Goodyear, Pepsi, Tostitos, University of Wyoming, Carpet One, Kaplan U, Caterpillar Dealers, and many other local, regional, and national clients.

Paul has over 30 years experience as a musician performing and recording with many acts in the local Kansas City area and other markets, as well as producing and recording my own work as a solo artist and as a band under the name Bright Morning. I have owned my own personal home studio for over 20 years and engineered many young bands and other projects. As a guitarist/front man/singer/songwriter I have developed the necessary skills to interpret and portray your script in a convincing and professional manner.

I am also an author with two fiction novels and two short books on skills enhancement for writers called “Stop Sucking And Start Writing”. Sharpening words and delivering a concise and believable story are what I do… and that’s what I can do for your voice project.
