Clear, Informed, Character Specialist, Witty, Warm

Voice Description

Smooth baritone for narrations, radio and television.

Character voices, including Abraham Simpson, C. Montgomery Burns, Marine Boot Camp Senior Drill Instructor, Michael Jackson (the radio voice, used to narrate Stephen W. Hawking's "A Brief History Of Time", and a host of others.

I also record "serenations". These are pieces of great literature, poetry and quotes from the writings of Shakespeare (and other period writers), and excerpts from novels and movie quotes set to sensual, soothing, romantic or relaxing music to set a tone, and evoke emotion, or romance.

Many who have my recordings of this work listen for an indulgent moment, in which they are left feeling as though they were given a break from thier hectic day; and showered with emotional and vocal affection.

My Voice Experience

Phone systems, inclunding OCTEC-64, and MERLIN by AT&T, radio work through WGAY, WDJY, and locals to the Washington, DC and Metro Areas.

As a former Computer Science Professor and Current FCC Licensee, I custom Built my computing equitment personally for interfacing with my microphones, and other equipment. I do fast turnaround on short scripts.

Samples can be accepted, worked with and transcoded into virutally any format, bitrate, and can be delivered via broadband.

Multicore, 64-bit processing and encoding allows the production cycle to move more quickly, and smoothly; and the hardware I've built for the soundbooth is a significant investment, which allows greater flexibility and freedom to work around the clock if required to follow up on a longer script.

Music, sound effects, and foley are all available, all digital.

Rights for music, effects, and trademarked items will of course need to be negotiated if required.

My Studio Equipment

As an A+ Certified Service Technician, and S.M.E. as well as a fifteen year computer technician and 8 years as a computer science professor; I design and build all my PC equipment, I grew up in this industry, as my Father and Grandfather founded R&R Lighting Company and VOX-CAM Associated LTD of Silver Spring.

I am also the developer of the Brainbench.com COMPUTER ELECTRONICS certification test, which is now held by over 54,000 persons, earning an average of over 60k a year. My technical skills at production are matched with a smooth, clean sound, and clear voice.

I have a separate room in my home which is engineered as a workspace complete with video and audio capabilities, chromakey green wall for overlays, and soundproofing for both material noises, sound shorts, electrical and inertial noises caused by sources outside of the studio; including air-baffling circulation to avoid "plosives" phenomenon with the microphones.

I can deliver a "clean track" on time and in format, to your specifications.
