HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Here's just a little blurb about where I'm coming from in the voice over world. I am educated in all things voice over through the wonderful program at SuchAVoice.com. On top of that, I have had 20 years of experience in vocal training and technique. In this VO world, you have to find what you are good at, and focus on doing that. I have a versatile voice, capable of doing many things: commercials, narrations, audio-books, animation, etc. Because of my theatrical training, technical experience, and creativity, I am able to accomplish a variety of different voice over genres.
Here's a brief outline of my education:
Education- B.A. in Music Performance- Austin Peay State Univerity, Clarksville, TN 1995
Masters in Music, University of Nebraska-Lincoln 1997
Certificate in Performance, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 1999
My performance career is extensive. Here's my musical career, in a nutshell. I made my Carnegie Hall debut as bass soloist for Schubert's Mass in G Major. I have performed with companies such as the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra and Opera and Portland Opera. I was chosen as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Schoenberg's Moses und Aron in Berlin, Germany, under the baton of Pierre Boulez. I perform regularly with the Chattanooga Bach Choir as baritone soloist.
On top of performing, I am also a private voice instructor at Chattanooga State Community College, where I also direct the opera ensemble. I have also taught voice at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, Elgin College, Lee University, and Tennessee Wesleyan College.
I am also a stage director, staging various opera productions and scenes programs.

Very resonant and live to grab attention, versatile in pitch and inflection to assume a wide range of characterizations, genuine and informative for narrations, fun and down to earth for commercials. The Good Guy: positve, upbeat, friendly, conversational squared.
