HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I've been behind a microphone professionally since age fifteen. Many years at top stations on the west coast....full time voice over since the early eighties. I was one of the first guys to record at home.....a pioneer of much of the technology commonly used by talent today. I had the first VO website with streaming audio. I was the voice of Superman, and Reed Richards/Fantastic Four. I voiced the trailer for INTO THE WILD for Sean Penn. I've done promos for all the networks. I work primarily from my own studio on a mountaintop ranch in Ojai, CA, and from the pied a terre in Toluca Lake. I participate in native american cultural events around the country, and have two siberian huskies. I have one brown eye, and one green eye.
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
This season I am narrator on several series for cable networks, including: Known Universe for NatGeo, Haunting Evidence for TRUtv, Weird, True and Freaky for Animal Planet, and Collaborate Now for CNBC.
All over the map. I am a character narrator. If there is such a thing.
Hi, Beau. Guess you are the guy to answer this, please! I am discovering some producers request jobs be file-transferred to them as wav. In general, do pro studios have any strong preference between 41 kHz (CD standard) or 48 kHz? I use a Mac and the glorious Twisted Wave, so there's a ready choice of wav, aiff and other settings.

Thanks for the add Beau, I can always use some advice from someone that has been in the biz many years. I work hard on my voice overs and haven't got any work from it, but I do production for the radio station I work for. What you think I need to do to get voice work?
I'm a V.O. noob just beginning my foray into this new realm and I want to thank you up front for your videos and other pieces here and there, particularly your technical advice, equipment recommendations and the like. It's dynamite stuff for a novice like me (well, General, actually - K6CPW).
Question: You talked about your days in Colorado, driving down the hill into Denver, etc. I grew up in Boulder ('65-'75). I'm curious - where did you live at the time?
Just by chance, I was surfing Youtube and came across the video tour you made about your studio, career and a sliver of your life. Wonderful! Genuine and touching at the end when you gave a sincere thanks to some key people in your life. Thanks for sharing it with all of us...and a VERY belated happy birthday.
Hi Beau, just wanted to apologise for spamming the group about my booth build project. I had intended to start a discussion but hit "send message" by mistake... oops.
Off to a great start, thanks for adding me,
