HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I began my voice over career around 1993 in Nashville,Tennessee. Not taking it too seriously at first while busy trying to make it big in the music biz and running my own commercial photography studio. While singing demos in Nashville studios, I was asked to voice a few projects. “You mean just talk?”, I asked. I was starting to find out then that my spoken word was more “unique” than my singing voice. Learning a whole new form of expression, I refined my craft through acting workshops, local theatre performances and on-camera work.
As time went by and frustration grew with the music business, I found myself voicing radio/TV ads, music promotions, audio books and corporate videos. Establishing my
warm and rugged, storytelling AMERICANA signature sound. My voice, face and physical presence match up perfectly and lead me to pursue on-camera work as well.
I’ve become a leading voice for the industries of construction and manufacturing, agriculture and equine, outdoor sports and travel, community banking, finance and insurance. As well as a colorful voice for film, television, museum and corporate documentary. My combined background of music, acting and photography have shaped me into a seasoned voice over artist with a great “ear” for audio and an imaginative “eye” for the visual... your best choice for TV, film and video.

A CD I co-produced with Bob Corbin here in Nashville in 2003. It's still valid today... still sells from many music websites...and still makes me proud that I had a hand in it's production. Check it out for Veterans' Day. And be sure and shake hands with a vet! Click the blog link for the full story and links.…
It was a pleasure meeting you at VOICE as well. It was great meeting everyone in person. I had a blast, and I learned a lot. Now, I need to extract and organize all the info taken in over the three days. Again, it was great meeting you in person.
I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
I have been working with Julie since October, and I am thoroughly loving this side of the entertainment industry. I am glad we were able to connect through VU. I hope all is well with you, and have a fabulous Sunday! =)
P.S. I hope Spring has approached Nashville in finer fashion than it has in Atlanta, b/c I am DYING for the warm weather to stick around.
Doing the Yinzer stuff is funny sometimes because people here who really talk like that don't "get it", which makes it even funnier. We do it because we can (it's OK to make fun of Pittsburghers if you're from here, I guess) and we enjoy it, but even my family was shocked to find out that character is me since I don't sound like that normally. IT's fun though!
