Guy next door with a side of business and comedy

Voice Description

I would describe my voice as very smooth and attention grabbing at normal conversation pace and level. Having presented to various companies in my professional career as a project manager, I have learned to control my tone, pitch, and pacing in accordance to my audience.

I can take my voice low and slow for a sexy "Barry White"-ish type or perk up and take the pitch higher and increase the pace for fun, exciting project.

My Home Base

, Georgia, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Having lived in Ireland for a year I became proficient understanding their inflection and how they stress the later part of a word compared to the US English way of stressing the early part of the word. This is very useful for British and Australian accents as well.

Spanish, German, and Irish accents come naturally growing up in house with a Mom from South America and father from Irish/German decent.

Most find it amazing that I'm born and raised in Atlanta, GA and do not have a strong country accent. However, being in business I've learned when to let my speech pattern drawls become more pronounced given my audience. If you need a Southern Gentleman I'm your man.

My Voice Experience

My voice experience I would say is limited at this point. I have experience as a company presenter speaking to large audiences about products and services. However, my interest in this line of work comes from a podcast that I created and produced in my home studio. Many people commented more on my voice than the content of the podcast, so this seemed like a good time to put my voice to work!

I write and compose music for TV, web, and ads in my home studio so voice work seems like a logical next step. I'm extremely excited to get a voice career underway.

My Training

Well I earned a BS in business management. But my career as a project manager has benefited me most by teaching me time and task management. I am very focused on steps to completion and finishing on time.

This has been a huge benefit for my music composing and creation. Every endeavor in art and/or music is a project.

My Studio Equipment

I have built a terrific studio over the past two years. My outboard equipment is new and maintained at all times. The studio was originally created for music production, but my vocal setup is very professional.

Current setup: Presonus Studio Channel for mic pre-amp, compression and EQ ... running to Presonus audio interface then into Presonus Studio One 2.6 Professional. I'm experienced in mixing vocals using Izotope Nectar 2, Waves Vocal (Gold) bundle, and various industry standard plugins.

I'm a one man shop for voice, music, and video. Let me work please!

Additional Skills

My project management career is desireable and a major asset in this business. I have a firm understanding of getting projects done on time and in budget while maintaining client updates. I look forward to getting to work for you!

Thanks for taking the time to review me.
