Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents: Variations on Southern accents (Virginia aristocrat, North Carolina, deep south, Texas), a Sam Elliott-type, a little British, a little German, a little Swedish, a little French. I have a delivery reminiscent of Morgan Freeman, although it's not an impersonation. Character voices include mob boss, "elvish old man", demon, and various cartoon voices.

My Voice Experience

TV, radio, non-broadcast, gaming, corporate, radio imaging.. whatever. I love it all! Thanks to a long career in broadcasting, production, copywriting, recording and sound design I've seen it all and I get it - whatever's thrown at me.

My Training

Over 25 years of experience in broadcasting, audio production, voice talent and copywriting. I've taken voice coaching classes and lots of direction.

My Studio Equipment

Shure KSM32 into a classic Valley 401 as a preamp with a touch of compression from an Alesis 3630 mainly as a gate. From there into a Mackie 1604 hitting a Focusrite Clarett 8Pre interface before it hits Pro Tools. Source Connect-ready if clients would prefer to record from a studio. Phone patch via Skype.

Additional Skills

Copywriting, production, sound design, music composition. I'm also a podcaster, producing a twice-weekly podcast featuring music from the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
