HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
As a child I would get into trouble making noises with my mouth from the back of the classroom, which were deemed “a distraction”…now I get paid to distract; funny how life works itself out. Currently, I am working as Production Director for a cluster of 5 corporate radio stations in Wichita, Ks. writing, voicing and producing the majority of local, and sometimes national clients' radio commercials. I first began producing at the age of 17, working with an acoustic guitar, my voice and a very small, novice studio comprised of one analog 4-track Fotex, one tough as nails Electro-voice microphone, an effects processor and any space I could find to set up shop, typically in a closet or bathroom depending on the acoustics desired. I began my career in radio in 2000 as co-host for a local talk show called “Un-Canned” discussing various local youth-oriented topics of interest and current events. Upon my arrival to radio, I discovered Cool Edit and devoted all my energy and many unpaid hours to becoming a proficient producer and voice-over talent using Syntrillium Software. In 2001 I turned my focus to developing various character reads, while improving my understanding of the industry, production skill-set and have since formed a solid narrative read, doing work for companies such as Pepsi Americas, Delta Airlines, Albertsons Pharmacies and Tyco. After only 7 years in radio, I had worked as an on-air personality, station monitor, imaging producer, production assistant, traffic director and now as Production Director over 5 corporate radio stations, voicing and writing; winning second place in the Kansas Association of Broadcasters in 2006 for production intensive copy, second place in 2008 for overall creative production and third place as a voice talent.
