Voice of Reason, Sarcastic, Characters, Warm,Silly
I can provide versatile services for your projects. For straight read spots and narrations, I offer sensitive, "voice of reason", warm reads. Need a hard-sell? I can blast it out ranging from excited, to full-on hysteria. I perform a wide variety of characters from simple to zany, with a healthy dose of humor. Sarcasm a specialty. For added listening enjoyment, I can perform a LaFontaine-inspired "Movie-Trailer" voice. I have been described as both a "real" sounding, natural voice...and a cartoon. It all depends on what you need me to be.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
As a native-born New Yorker, I can perform regional NYC accents from natural to parody. I also do English, Irish, Scottish, Australian, and Jewish characters. Leprechauns always a specialty. I can pull off The Crypt Keeper, Boris Karloff, Igor, Bill Clinton, Woody Allen, Jimmy Stewart, Wolfman Jack, Antonio Banderas, and other assorted voice styles including "Movie Trailer" delivery. I can convincingly perform characters in their late 20's through advanced age. I can be an irresponsible frat boy or surfer dude, and just as easily play the Mercedes salesman. I am your loving husband, best friend, criminal mastermind, psychotic customer, angry, friendly, sketch-comedy troupe next door.
My Voice Experience
I have worked professionally in radio since 1993, and am currently a Production Director for a busy cluster of stations in Central Pennsylvania. Having worked for several stations, in New York, Washington, DC, Delaware, and Pennsylvania...across multiple formats...I've written, produced, and voiced literally thousands of spots for a large variety of demographics. I have voiced spots for local Ad Agencies, as well as several spots for the now defunct Google Ad Creation Marketplace. From single lines, to full scripts...I'm happy to deliver what you need.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communication: Mass Media Production from the State University of New York, College at Geneseo...where I studied Radio and Television Production, Broadcast Writing, Broadcast Performance, Marketing, and Journalism. I have enjoyed a 22-year career in radio, and have honed my vocal and production skills over thousands of spots. I have had the pleasure of attending Dan O'Day seminars, and have received coaching from local theater groups.
My Studio Equipment
Microphone: AKG P220

I proudly tied for First Runner-Up "Best Commercial--Small Market" in the 2008 Radio and Production Awards...a feat I repeated in 2010...earned "Outstanding Small Market Commercial of the Year" in the 2010,2012, 2014, and 2015 Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters Awards, and was the winner of the National Association of Broadcasters "Don't Tax That Dial" PSA competition. I will gladly bring those skills to your project.
