Highlights

A good voice actor is something I've taken notice of even as a child. It would really bother me when the acting didnt sound legitimate. I later grew an obsession with the kings of voice overs for cartoons (Mel Blanc, a genius.. Billy West, Dan Castellaneta, Hank Azaria etc.. and even went as far as befriending a favourite on facebook, Dana Snyder.
I don't have a lot of range when it comes to characters or voices, however, the styles that I do have and the manner in which I perform are distinct and consistent. In every job Ive had when it comes to simply speaking with people I've always received compliments on my voice. Not as a singer, but I would guess for the tone and depth. I speak clearly as well and I pride myself on being a positive person, so this could be partial to the reason as well.

It's a trait I believe I own. WIth my background knowledge of audio engineering you'll receive excellent quality work. I have means to do so at any time, I don't need to book a studio. There are many areas in which I believe I can excell so I'm not limiting myself, however, my voice isn't deep enough for a movie opening, or high for a cartoon, but Im right in the middle. Im somewhere between Yogi Bear and a (sober) Hunter S Thompson. I'm aware of the work involved and would love to work with you!

Studio

  • Microphone

    wide diaphram AKG perception condensor (w/ pad and roll-off), Wide diaphram Audio-technica condensor (3 pattern w pad). these are my two best mics. I have a bunch of shure sm58's and 57's.

  • Computer & Software

    laptop and desktop running at dual quadcore processor, 8 gigs of ram, lots of space. I run Pro-tools mostly.

  • Special Equipment

    I own a very unusal analog ribbon synth. I play lots of instruments so I have guitars, keyboards, a bass, old drum machine's from the 80's, midi controllers, violin, ukelele, saxophone, 3/4 cello, and a bongo.

  • Delivery Methods

    email, regular mail, dropbox, and can deliver personally within 100km's of the Halifac area

  • Turnaround Time

    very much depends. but if it's a 3 minute radio jingle, within a day I can send a sample for feedback.

Service Description

I'm easy to work with and can take direction. My knowledge with recording and editing will allow for a quality product with a quick turnover. I have my own gear to record, so if I have to go back to fix something or if theres a deadline to meet in an unexpected amount of time it will be easily manageable.

I'm a friendly person who takes this seriously but mostly I'm very positive and I absolutely love this work. I'd be more than pleased to discuss this with you further.
