HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Disabled VET(US Navy: ballistic missile submarines) during the Viet Nam era. I have had a lot of legimate stage acting experience in high school and after in a local Little Theatre. DoD Trainer/Insturctor for many years, so I'm not intimidated by an audience. Have done "white color" jobs and also done long-haul truck driving. Owned and operated a small gift shop until I was diagnosed with a heart condition in 2004 Wrote and recorded many of my own ads for the gift shop. My tag line: "Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, worn the hat and walked in the shoes. Shook hands with the reaper more than once."
Have attended a Voice over school run by Mrs Marie Prater in Birmingham, AL a couple of years ago.

I am a N. American Caucasian male voice who is self motivated and able to follow directions well. I like reading stories to my child. My tone is casual, warm, approachable, dignified, educated voice like a Southern college professor, and friendly. I love MilitrayChannel.com, Discovery Channel, and NatGeo. My accent has been somewhat homogeniazed by my travels over this country and my time in the military. I provide voice over for corporate presentations, training videos, online tutorials, and audio books, etc.
