GMX 2013: Halo's voice of Master Chief, Steve Downes to appear
Steve Downes (stevedownesvo.com) is an American DJ and voice actor. He is best known for his work as the voice of Master Chief in the popular Halo video game series. He worked as a disc jockey from 1978 until present. Most recently, he works as the morning show host for 97.1 WDRV “The Drive” in Chicago, Illinois. Downes also hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Classics”.
Steve Downes has been in commercial voice since 1990. He has provided voices for several video games. His first experience in voice acting for video games came in 1999 when he played the role of Gunnar in the video game Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator by Valkyrie Studios. Despite the relatively minor role, his performance caught the attention of the voice acting director and music composer of the game, Martin “Marty” O’Donnell. When Marty began working on the video game Halo: Combat Evolved at Bungie, he invited Steve to voice the game’s main character, Master Chief.

What is GMX?
Geek: a person who has excessive enthusiasm for and some expertise about a specialized subject or activity.
Media: the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely.
Expo: a large-scale public exhibition or show.
The Geek Media Expo (“GMX”) is an annual exposition and social conference relating primarily to the popular arts, sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, and relevant cultural/lifestyle themes, presented as an educational and multi-media entertainment showcase. The event serves as a major revenue driver for the ArtsCubed organization.
GMX’s growth has been explosive, setting the stage for GMX to become Tennessee’s largest celebration of geekdom.
GMX is presented by ArtsCubed, a Nashville-based not-for-profit corporation. The mission of ArtsCubed is to advance popular visual, performing and literary arts – along with related cultural experiences central to the lives of the community – through events, outreach, education and associated initiatives. ArtsCubed also presents GMX’s sister event MTAC – Middle Tennessee Anime Convention. ArtsCubed is operated entirely by a volunteer staff.
