My Voice Experience

On the banks of a small river, a child was born. Prophets foretold that this child would one day influence millions. His parents hoped and prayed for all great things to come to fruition. Fate, it seemed, had another plan in store for the child. The child was so proficient at speaking that he went to school to become a broadcast professional. However after being offered a job on the radio he left school to pursue his dream. Over 10 years later, here I, err, he is. He has voiced and produced thousands of commercials, done a live radio show for over 14 years, voice-tracked shows on a variety of formats including: Classic Rock, AC, Country, Soft Rock and Alternative, hosted various dinners and events as MC, Voiced and produced announcements for phone systems and PA systems and tons of other awesome stuff I can't remember right now, but trust me, it's awesome.

My Training

I did attend a broadcast class in college, but accepted a job in radio and did not complete my communications degree. I have been in the radio business for over 15 years and have put my voice to just about everything possible. Podcasts, commercials, MC work, television (when necessary), public service announcements, PA systems, voicemail and on-hold systems, audiobooks and more.

My Studio Equipment

I use a Alesis Studio 24 board with a Shure SM7B mic and swing arm stand. I also use Adobe Audition for recording and mixing of audio.

Additional Skills

I do perform a daily live radio show and commercial production on a daily basis. I am constantly using my voice and supporting my skills as a broadcast professional as well as a producer.
