"Let MY Voice tell YOUR Story"

My Background
After many years of experience as an audio engineer, event production manager in both the corporate and live entertainment arena, and executive management, I have honed my voice over skills to satisfy the most demanding clients. I have been involved with business presentations, awards shows, promotional spots, explainer/whiteboard videos, training videos, technical/medical narration, announcing, and just about every other kind of project you can think of. I have been able to inspire, engage, teach, and inform people in a way that fosters trust, confidence, and the feeling of connecting with the guy next door.

Fast-forward to Today
Now is the time for me to step into the freelance realm and work for myself. This will allow me to focus more on my clients and their projects, their needs and not what the company thinks those needs are, and give them the level of customer service they deserve. Customer satisfaction is my #1 priority; I feel the client needs that commitment from the vendor that has the privilege of providing a service to them.

My Voice
I have been told that my natural voice is that of a warm and friendly gentleman. However I can mix it up for different applications and can give you anything from a young male to a grandfather, cartoon/video game character, science professor, and more. Just tell me what you are looking for and I can typically achieve your goals, with-in reason of course. My voice would not be the best choice for a baritone voice like James Earl Jones.

Why Me?
Typically a voice over is used to engage an audience. In this digital age, you only have a few seconds to capture the interest of your audience before you lose them and they move on to something else. Yes, the script is important. However, if the voice over artist cannot translate the script into the passion and emotion intended by the writer, he/she has failed you. I will listen to your intent of the script and direction, giving you the service and product you are expecting. I am confident that I will deliver the voiceover that will fit your project. We all know that sometimes some tweaking needs to take place, so if I need to rerecord a section or two, no problem. Send me your feedback and I will make any changes necessary. Remember, your satisfaction is my #1 priority.

Recording and Turnaround Times
I typically record 9am – 5 pm EST, Monday – Friday. I can usually deliver most projects within 24 hours. However I understand that emergencies can come up and will always go the extra mile for my clients. Need something quick, let me know, chances are I can accommodate your schedule.

Studio
High quality, pristine audio is a requirement. My private studio includes a quiet, acoustically tuned whisper room and top quality equipment at every stage of the signal chain. Rode NT1 and Shure SM7B Microphones; Tascam, Focusrite Interfaces; and a Reaper Digital Audio Workstation running on a Dell tower on steroids with Waves and Izotope RX6. I am always adding new gear to my studio, if you’re not moving forward, you are being left behind.

Are you ready to experience great customer service, along with a high quality product? Drop me a message, you won’t regret it.
