Facebook Synthetic Voice Job

Sooooo, it’s high time I announce that I did the name pronunciation feature for Facebook.  Every single account in the US, all 162.9 million of them, has this feature available, should they want to use it.  Here are the instructions to enable it on your own page.

I’m the Voice of the Painting

This wacky job took three sessions to match the VO up to the animation and find the right balance of a Greek-ish accent.  After the entire spectrum I think we settled on 40% Greek-ish sounding:) Either way the job was fun and I love doing sessions at Eleven Studios and Juice Studios!

Licensed Optician Campaign

Every once in a while I do a job that’s so cute I can’t resist sharing it.  It’s been a very exciting year, full of gigs that I’m not allowed talk about, so my sharing has tapered off.  But this campaign, currently running in Canada, didn’t seem to mind.  Such cute animation!  Here are two of the spots:

Voice of BPM on Sirius XM Channel 51

For almost a year now, I have been the voice of the EDM station on Sirius XM called BPM.  It’s a fun gig!  My voice sounds so dramatically different by the time the producer over there works his magic.  Check out the difference between what I turn in and what airs on satellite radio! Here is what I turn in: …
