Highlights

***Voice***

Whether it's a madcap Joe's Crabshack spot with a shrimp on a treadmill, an epic, iron forging, Lord Of The Rings-esque spot for Rogue fitness or extolling the virtues of all natural male enhancement products, I try to bring a sense of enjoyment to each and every project. Well okay. Some are a stretch. _(They don't work, by the way. None of them, dammit. Or so I've heard.)_

But I digress.

I've had some wonderful clients over the years, like Chevrolet, CNN, HGTV, Focus On The Family, Delta and AT&T just to name a few. And I've worked with a couple who were a real pain in the...

But let's talk technology for a minute.

***Studio***

I operate a full service commercial studio in Atlanta. Audio is always top drawer, on time and on budget. No surprises. For the gear heads among you, my mic of choice is usually a U-87 patched into a Universal Audio LA-610 mic pre. Sometimes I use an AKG C-12, sometimes an SM-7. And sometimes a Neve 1073 pre. Depends on the nature of the spot.

***Background***

I've had the good fortune of doing something I love for over twenty years. My mom told me I'd never be able to earn a living running my mouth. It's one of the few times she was happy to be proven wrong.

I began my career as a composer and sound designer, writing music and doing audio post production. One day, while working on a broadcast spot for one of my clients, the producer was wanting to make some changes to the copy. They asked if I could record a scratch track. After auditioning three other talents, they decided to keep my read. I got paid twice on that project, which was awesome. The rest is history. I still compose and mix, but VO has become the third ring in the circus.

***Shameless Plug***

So if you happen to be reading this and need some original music...

Ya know.

Just sayin’.

***In Closing***

Since the early days of my career, I have been mentored by some of the best people in the business. Now I pass along what I have learned by mentoring others and teaching VO workshops. In short, I'm a grateful guy with the gift of gab who would love nothing more than to bring something fun and fresh to your next project. Whether you need some deep, subdued gravitas, a professional spokesperson or a friendly and believable guy next door, I'd love a chance to earn your business.

Experience

For over 20 years, I have done voice and audio post production for broadcast clients ranging from CNN and HGTV to Focus on the Family, In Touch Ministries, Chevrolet, AT&T and Cartoon Network. Whether I'm delivering information clearly, punching your product in a promo or sitting on the sprawling veranda of a southern plantation calling for Belvedere, my beloved blood hound, I've had a thrilling ride giving voice and personality to characters, campaigns and products on television and radio. I'd love the opportunity to bring something special to your next project.
