Voice Description

My voice can be mellow and smooth as for poetry, intense as needed for a movie trailer, light for comedy, truthful for corporate presentations, commanding for attention- getters and slightly accented (Eastern European) when necessary. My basic voice is New York or New England.

No other languages spoken per se, but a fair background in Spanish, German, Polish, Russian and extremely limited Arabic.

My Voice Experience

My career experience has been in high-tech electronics, and I have worked in the Middle East as well as Europe. During my career I often addressed large groups of military and civilian officials, and am comfortable speaking before both small and large groups of people.

I am very knowledgeable in mechanics, electronics, and logistics.



My Training

I did basic acting in grade school and high school productions and sang baritone in the Acappella choir. In the last several years, I appeared as an extra in the TV series Kingpin pilot filmed in El Paso and recently, as an improvisational role player (Iraqi village mayor) in support of U.S. Army training. I have also completed an acting skills and voice course conducted by Mr. Ted Karber, a local playwright, and artistic director of the Aardvark Theater. In April 2008, I was selected to do a commercial in Taiwan for the local KFC franchise - I was Col.Sanders from head to toe. Very interesting program.

Also in 2008 I had parts in 2 independent films, a surgeon and a judge. These films will be released in the Fall of 2009. In 2010 I participated in 2 more films as a Russian villain and as a florist.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in business administration, as well as receiving diplomas for military and government training. I am also a Certified Professional Logistician.

My Studio Equipment

I use an SM58-LC Shure mic thru a Yamaha MG102c mixer or an XP201 pre-amp, both into a software program called Diamond Cut 8 (used by the Smithsonian) which contains all the filters,effects, and editing capabilities needed to output a clean audio file.
DC 8 also allows me to convert to WAV, MP3, WMA, and AIFF.

I have also acquired 2 new programs, AVS4 Audio Recorder and AVS4 Audio Converter, that have added audio conversion capabilities.

Additional Skills

Older cars are on my list of hobbies - I own 2 Nissans: a 1983 280ZX and a 1989 300ZX – and my taste in music is considered to be unusual: Mariachi or Classical, and some occasional opera tenors including Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and Jose Carreras.

Being retired leaves my schedule open to your requirements.
