Performance Notes
This is a speech I recorded of myself, just speaking casually, for the Valedictorian Award I received upon graduation in 2013 from CATO Tech/ da Vinci College. In the background is a song recorded, mixed, produced, and mastered by me as well.

I'm a proud father and husband; I'm passionate about teaching and raising my children. I'm a seasoned and educated audio engineer; I've been working in the field of sound for over 20 years. I'm a fitness enthusiast; I've played many sports and have a heart for basketball, weight training, HIIT training, and general well-being. I'm a techie; I grew up in the 80's - evolving as computers evolved, and now I run a business using sophisticated recording and production software & hardware. I'm a jack of all trades; I spent years building houses, I own a century old farmhouse and piece by piece I'm restoring to it's former beauty. I'm into reading...anything at all, all genres, I just love to read information, regardless of material. I'm a life long learner; I've worked hard for 3 college diplomas, and enjoying multiple hobbies, when I have the time for them ;) I'm a gentleman; I'm respectful of all people regardless of creed or belief system I'm honest, sincere, and assertive; I'll tell you what I think with tact and poise. I'm easy to get along with :) I have got a great set of ears; I've been involved in audio production since the early 90's. I know sound, I know it well. Most importantly, I have a great voice. I started singing publicly when I was 5 years old, and I have continued to use my voice in multiple productions for 35 years. I started recording music; my own and other artists' in the early 90's, using multi-track reel to reel recorders. I have an expressive, engaging, masculine, North American accent, with a slight, mid-lower pitched gruff, but in a soothing and gentle way. I'm capable of conveying multiple emotional nuances and textures, the right fit for all your characters.
