My professional experience deals in high-level vocal production work in the audio & music industries. I have spent years recording, editing and producing singers and voiceover talent for many projects. I have performed several myself, including background vocals for rock and pop songs, fun character voices for children's songs, and as host of a podcast about creating music in today's changing entertainment industry.
I have a bachelor's degree in Music Production & Engineering from Berklee College of Music and I have studied with renowned vocal coaches Seth Riggs, and Marc Cashman.
I have worked professionally as a voice over producer/editor on projects with major VO talent, and I have written/performed many conversational podcast scripts. I have a keen sense of wording/grammar usage for what is expected by voice overs in today's market to keep copy sounding fluid and interesting.
Voice over isn't just a job for me, it's a passion. I am constantly working to improve my character voices, and listening to voice over artists and comedians to improve my timing and performances.
