Highlights

My reading style and voice is characterized by the following: articulate and clear, well suited to explaining concepts and procedures. I can read with warmth and emotive subtlety, sincere and believable, trustworthy, or in a lighter hearted, conversational way and with a friendly tone. I can also get gritty and tough. I do like to read introspective and emotional, poetic sorts of scripts, as well as longer form narration in which there are changes in pace and tone required. Storytelling, I suppose. I have a great deal of experience in audio production, and am well able to deliver a professional track, either raw or fully produced. They say the proof is in the pudding. These are the ingredients at my disposal, and I believe I can mix a pretty good pudding. It needs only for you to taste it.

Experience

I have spent roughly 30 years as an audio engineer, mostly in television and with a little film thrown in, in both live and post-production capacities. Since beginning my career on the other side of the microphone, I have recorded a national TV commercial, internet commercials, documentary narration, and corporate videos for both internal use and the internet. You could say it's a mixed bag, which is in keeping with my varied background, as I like to try different things.
