Dean is a broadcast pro with a different voice and capable of a natural sound. He has nice range from a polished announcer's approach, to casual and great with a hard sell. Dean is not a "reader." He will study the copy and deliver with the appropriate intonation based on his interpretation, but Dean loves direction and feedback.
Being a business owner, Dean understands how important customer service is. Working with Dean will not be a test in patience. The voice work is one part, but the process is another. The process can make the difference. Dean takes direction well. He will do what it takes to make the client happy. Even his wife agrees, Dean is the type you want to take home to meet the family, or at least, be great with your clients. All feedback is encouraged. At the end of the day, Dean feels "my work is my brand and I want you to think of me for the next project".
Dean has a nice setup. In his main studio he has a Sennheiser MKH 416 using Windows 10 Adobe Audition. He will clean up the audio (breaths, mouth noises etc.) before the project is delivered. The studio is acoustically adjusted to get a clean final project. The processing on the final project is light. It can be adjusted to the client's liking.
Dean has an alternate studio he also works from for mainly auditions. Having a Sennheiser there, as well. The finished product will come from the main studio with the 416. Both studios are 10-15 minutes apart from each other.
Dean has a JLK Phone patch and can also "Skype" for sessions (usually it is not monitored , unless he is working a project using Skype).
One more thing from Dean; "If you like my voice and range please "like' my audition so I will be on your short list. You can also "heart" me and I will be on your "Favorites List" if you think of a project I might fit in the future."

Customer service is is extremely important to me.I will do what it takes to make the client happy. All feedback is encouraged. I want you to have something you and I are proud of. At the end of the day, my work is my brand and I want you to think of me for the next project.
I take direction well. I invent you to direct the recording session through a phone patch or Skype.
I use Windows 10 and Audition. I will clean up the audio (breaths, mouth noises etc.) when I deliver the project. I have acoustically adjusted my studio so you will get a pretty clean final project. I do not mess with processing the final work unless you think it needs to be adjusted. If so can be taken care of for you. I find most want the raw output.
I am able to travel to a studio in the Dallas - Fort Worth area or out of town, pending availability and travel arrangements, if there is a need for your project..
I am able to deliver your file format requests through Dropbox, FTP and email. Other options can be made available , if necessary.
Turnaround is 24 hours or less (unless there is a specific multi-page project which in most cases I can deliver in 24-48 hours)
Amazing job Dean! The client was very happy with the first take which speaks volumes about how Dean can really deliver top quality audio. We look forward to more collaborations in the future! 5 ++ STARSElliot MacKinnon
