My Studio Equipment


Additional Skills

I have a reputation of "getting it right the first time", not needing multiple takes merely to get through copy. This allows producers to keep costs down and complete projects in timely fashion, while still getting precisely the voice, tone and style desired for the project.

I am flexible, willing to adjust to fit the style of voice work needed for any project. I am respectful of the fact that the producer or director know best how the work should sound.

I have worked in a variety of settings, both in studio and on location; in films; radio commercials; off written copy that I have written and copy written by others and describing live activities (such as sports).
