My past as an air traffic controller has given me a great experience. It is the ultimate combination of right brain/left brain working in tandem. I believe it is this past that has given me the ability to be able to combine my creativity with my analytical side and put it into being a voice over talent that has a unique set of skills. After 25 years of being behind the microphone as a controller, and part time DJ, doing voice over, is very familiar to me.
In many ways, I approach voice over the same as being a controller. In both, you are creating, with nothing but your words painting the picture. Each painting has it's own unique set of challenges, and each one needs to be approached differently.
I believe the most important thing in voice over is being able to listen! You must have a clear understanding of what your client is trying to accomplish. Make your clients vision your own. Envision the end result, then get behind that microphone, and paint that picture. I look forward to helping you create your masterpiece!
