Bio

I’m a full time professional American voice actor with my own studio. My goal has always been and continues to be to deliver the highest quality professional voice over product each and every time as well as to be the most professional and friendliest voiceover artist you will ever work with.  I have worked to develop my crisp strong toned voice and speak with clear diction and a versatility to adjust to each individual project. Clients have applauded my talent for following directions and interpreting their needs requiring few takes in order to deliver just what they imagined.

I would enjoy the chance to put my professionalism to work as a Voice Actor with your company

Whether you want the voiceover delivery in your face”, or warm and friendly comforting, Scott’s voice talent can provide the read you need. Scott’s voiceovers have been described as “powerful” “rich” “strong and solid” and “authoritative”, but he can also provide a smooth and sexy sound, presenting you with a broad range of reads to choose from for your voiceovers.

 

Testimonials:

Dealing with Scott was soooo simple. He got the gist of the script from the very beginning which is something I strive for. Even the best artists can only be led so much. His voice (for this) is a great combination of spunky but also forceful and he struck that balance perfectly. I would not only recommend him to anyone looking for a great voice but would work with him again without hesitation. First rate.

Audiobook update

Audiobook update

Ok so it has been awhile since I did an update, well, I submitted the final product today to the publisher, yeah!! Can I just say omg how labor intensive it is to produce an audiobook, being my first book made it much worse. I actually ended up doing the book twice because I didn’t like the way it was the first time and I’m not exctly sure it came out any better the second time.
Learning points include:
Need a better mastering process
Animate more
Do as much of the reading as you can at one time- sometimes breaks change your voice..

I will say what you hear in your head is not always what you hear recording, hmmm..

I’m not sure how long it will take the publisher to put it out, but when I hear something I’ll let you know.

Gotta love waking up on a Saturday morning, opening your email only to find a message that a client wants another audition for a project, yeah…..

A great way to end the day!

A great way to end the day!

I got added to the roster for a New York/London based agency, that deals alot with spotify, so who knows for you Spotify users it may be my voice you hear for the commercials, so don’t skip.

Daimler Blog

I did another narration that appeared on the Daimler blog, this time involving hacking and engineering, it’s a pretty interesting read or for me listen.

https://blog.daimler.com/2017/09/26/hackathon-iaa-hd-vision-deep/

Audiobook update

So after 2 days, I have recorded a total of 9 sections or chapters, and edited 2 that are ready to go. Only 25 more to record and 32 to edit. I’m not sure what I’ve gotten myself into, long form narration is definitely a lot of work. It is very time consuming and exhausting. However I am pleased with the progress I have already made on this book.

Signed an agreement today to narrate my first audiobook. Let’s see how this goes, should be good, I’ll let you know how it’s going throughout the process. I’m looking forward to this new challenge.

Monday 12pm update

Monday 12pm update

Well wasn’t that a lot of fun, what a night. The power went out around 10pm and the wind was coming from the wrong direction to power up the generator, so all we could do was find a news station on my iPad and watch that for awhile. Decided to get some shuteye around 11 or so, dozed in an out of the pounding rain and blowing winds as they got heavier and heavier. Oh and before we crashed out the news said the storm was heading more up the center of the state than the west coast , so we got that going for us. Things seemed to die down around 3:30am so I thought, I jumped up out of bed and ran outside to check the weather, nope, went back inside and went back to bed. 5:30a again went outside, and this time the wind direction had changed, so I pulled the generator out and fired it up, yes, we have pooower. First thing on the ac, ahh feels good. Then proceeded to go down the breaker panel turning on only the necessaries, coffee time. After a couple cups time to go outside and check around the house, a few branches down, but not one issue with the house, yes score.

It is now noon time and for the most part of I have most of our stuff put back in place. Had a great time hanging out with my cousin and her family and for the most part all the pets were really good considering the conditions.

Cable is out, but no big deal, the entire city of twenty six thousand plus residents are without power so I’m sure there are alot of generators in action.

that is all for now. Still unable to record today, so let’s see what tomorrow brings.

5pm update:

We have had quit a few small squalls roll through, everyone is doing good, spirits are still high, but its going to be a long night. Right now we are sitting on the patio watching the rain and wind blow while watching the news. Getting ready to fire up the grill before the heavy stuff rolls in, but all in all so far not too bad.

9:30am update

Not too bad of a night, had one little squall roll through around 3 am lasted about 10-15 min. Currently just a little drizzle going on.

The party is starting

It’s saturday at 8:30pm and the winds are starting to pick up, we have had rain off and on all day, not from Irma but from the cold front that came down, so it really didn’t help people trying to make last minute preparations, Oh and the power went out for about an hour already, no big deal.

The day started out nice when I flipped on the tv and saw that the path had shifted more to the west, (phew), however my cousin who lives north of tampa is now dead in its path, so they made the trek across the state and are bunking up with us. Which is good because like most families we are always saying we need to get together more, well thank you Irma for making that possible. So we now 5 dogs, 4 cats, 5 adults and 2 children under the age of 5 shacked up having a good time.

Ok so back to the weather as of right now the wind is blowing a fairly steady 30mph, the temperature is very nice, almost a little cool but some of that could be just nerves, and ready to get this over with. The next 48 hours should be fun.

More updates to come.

T- 24+ hours

It’s Friday 6:30pm and some fairly good news, the storm has shifted to the west alittle, but its forward approach has slowed down to 12 mph. Today has not been great though here in Volusia county we have had alot of rain, coupled with the rain we have had over the last few weeks and the ground is just saturated, so the water is already starting to pond (not good) this leaves little room for the upcoming rain we are about to get. As it stands the next 72 hrs. could be fun. Most people that I have seen and talked too are ready that just want the time to keep on ticking and get this party started so they can move on.

Due to all the prepping of the house and the rain delaying the ability to do other things I wasn’t able to audition for any new projects today, since everything is pretty caught up I hope to catch up tomorrow morning before we start getting the first of the squalls.

That’s all for today, until next time.

The life of a VO in the eye

Let me preface this by saying that first I’m not a blogger never have been never planned on being but the opportunity arose to give a first-hand experience as to the life of a VO in the eye of a hurricane. It’s Thursday evening at 10:15 September 7 and its T -48 hours before hurricane Irma arrives at this location. It’s been quite a week between auditions taking care of clients, and preparing for the storm which includes food basic necessities getting the house prepared for potential disaster and it’s only just begun. As a native Floridian this is not an unfamiliar road, however this one is different it’s bigger than any storm that I can recollect. I’m going to attempt to provide updates as often as I can as long as the power and the ability to have net access is available.

The week started just like any other doing auditions providing client with voice however it was that nagging feeling provided by the news that something impending was on the horizon. As a VO we read through the script and get into character however sometimes it’s difficult to get into that character when there’s 100 different things going through your mind of preparations that need to be taken into account for the storm.

Right now is the calm before the storm it’s warm, humid, very slight breeze but this is only just the beginning. But we are as prepared as we can be with all the basic necessities.

According to the recent reports the eye should come real close to my destination with category 3/4 storm force winds.

More to come..

#vo, # voiceover

Back at it

So after Thursday’s computer meltdown, I spoke with my account manager at sweetwater.com on Friday and was able to get a creation station dropped shipped and it arrived on Saturday, although I had a couple of issues I was able to start reloading all my necessities for the most part to be able to get back at it tomorrow morning.

What a 2 days its been.

While working on a project for a client in the Ukraine, a bolt of lightning from an oncoming storm, took out my computer with all my daw’s and files. After many hours of trouble shooting it was determined that the motherboard was fried, so now I ‘ve been scrambling around and setting up a laptop with makeshift software to provide the client his audio, all in all it was a success. If you have ever watched the booth junkie on YouTube he’s vary adamant about putting your files in the cloud for just such a reason, for me I have alot in the cloud but I definitely need to work a process where it immediately goes as soon as I’m done, however in this case it would not have mattered, I was in the middle of the read. Oh well.

Until next time.Voice on.

So for the last two weekends I with some help from my brother and wife built a recording booth, I had planned on doing this within the next few months but my time table was pushed up due to some new construction going on in the neighborhood which was making it very difficult to record. I didn’t take photos of the entire process, but I did take photos of almost completion to completion. I thought my office that I was using was very well acoustically treated, but once I got in the booth, wow what a difference. Sorry the images are a little out of order, I’m just glad I got them posted. I still have a few things on the punch list to finish up but those are just astetics.
