After acquiring a degree in architecture from The Ohio State University in 1973, I became an architect and practiced for thirty seven years until my retirement in 2010. I then started a new challenge in the world of voice over, where I discovered that many of the same elements that are required to design a building, also apply to transforming two dimensional words on paper into a living, breathing, three dimensional vocal sound called - the Voice Over.
Communication - Client/artist communication is essential in order to convey the client's message to their audience; with the key being attention to detail.
Creativity - Imperative to grab and hold the listener's attention throughout the read.
Clarity - The listener must receive a clear message from the client through the VO artist in a way that he/she "gets it".
I am an African American voice-actor, in the tradition of James Earl Jones and Dennis Haspert. And after voicing and producing hundreds of voice over recordings within various genres over the past seven years, I have the talent, creativity and experience to help you tell and sell your story!
