About Perry Anne (Perry)

Summary: I wear two hats; as a VO veteran of 15 years, and as an audio editor. I've found that I genuinely love, and am very good at what I do, but editing puts me in a particular zone. Whether for VO, podcasts, long-form narration or music, good editing brings order to story chaos, gives a podcast or ad message clarity, and just makes everything and everyone sound better. I'm so attuned that I can hear other people's edits and when I do, I know they haven't done it right. My VO chops are excellent as well but I see that AI will eventually do that job for me. Background and Experience: My mom worked in radio in the 50s in DC. In her footsteps, I began my audio career as an intern and then Associate Producer for NPR's Talk of the Nation/Science Friday (WNYC), while doing VO on the side. I moved on to be a Producer at USA Network, the Sci-Fi Channel, and several dot.coms. I also took time to pursue music, had a band that played CBGBs and all the storied NYC clubs. Ensuing recording sessions gave me a keener ear still for mixing, editing and audio precision. After 9/11, I moved to CA, and have made a living in audio full-time since 2004 (VO clients include Discovery, Ameriprise, NatGeo among hundreds of clients). My husband and I built our own music studio with an analog Neve 5088 console. We use Pro Tools HD and I'm an editing fanatic as our musical chops dissipate with age. I now have podcast clients from NPR to newbies, who get the sweetening package with music mix, intro/sponsor VO, audio editing, normalization and noise cleanup and final mix (and tape sync if needed.)
