I've been a voice artist for nearly a decade, but have worked in audio for almost 19 years. My time as a mastering engineer and audio editor help me to develop the cleanest, most professional files for your project. My work in music and video keep our projects fun and creative.
I'm also a music composer, video producer and content marketer - so I understand your workflow, your process, and your needs. We'll speak the same language during our time working together.
I received an AA from Kansas City Kansas Community College with an emphasis in Music Technology and Music Composition. I've also taken independent recording classes from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, attended voiceover workshops, and continue to sharpen my skills with online creative and business courses.
But the real education - my time in the trenches of studio and stage throughout the last two decades, satisfying clients, entertaining audiences, and staying on the cutting edge of new technologies, techniques, and innovations in the audio world.
