At the tender age of eight, I made doing the family dinner dishes was less tedious if I made a "radio show" out of the chore, doing play-by-play of each step of the process. I would ride my bike around the neighborhood for hours, playing "bus driver",calling out the names of the imaginary stops. I even announced assorted spoonfuls of fruit salad. My parents' just scratched their heads! My first job in radio was at age 16, leading to fulltime work for the next 10 years at both radio and TV stations in the Midwest, including such voice services as DJ, sportscaster, puppeteer, weather forecaster, and straight announcer.
A highlight of my voiceover career was in the 1990's as narrator/spokesman at Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a series of video presentations to the U.S. Congress, pitching for N.A.S.A. forthcoming space projects.
My Studio Equipment
I operate my own home studio with Pro Tools LE 7.3 with MP3 and wav conversion capability, supported by a Mac OS X laptop.
I earned a B.A. in both Speech and Psychology at Wayne State University, later a PhD in Clinical Psychology at Case Western Reserve University. Now I live and work as a psychologist and actor in Southern California.
With more than twenty years of experience, I have produced a great many effective voice productions. On the one hand, I enjoy reading and writing copy, the tougher the challenge the more I excel.On the other, I love to have fun with the creation of character voices.
