My Voice Experience

As a young child I grew up in a radio production studio where my Dad worked as a Deejay. What began as a silly childhood game soon became my full time job and the early experience provided me with a ready stable of voice over characters. I began my own radio career in 1984 and worked in radio as a drive time personality in the afternoon and morning until 1990. I then provided voice bumpers for WFQX Radio in Strasburg VA, and voice over talent for a car dealer dealership in Seaford DE. I was actively involved in theatre as well as Toast Masters, and then I began doing voice part time in 2006 for my current employer, and finally full time in 2009. This entailed television commercial voice over, radio commercial voice over, as well as live product representation on radio and Television. I have narrated instructional videos, as well as provided voice mail services and message on hold services. I write and perform custom made songs for special occasions. I currently work for CAP Management where I write and produce and edit all radio and TV for their four companies, Auto World Service & Accessories, The Car Store, DMAC, Atlantic Pawn, and Atlantic Finance. I also work with the Salisbury Children's Theatre as a puppeteer, sing and preform with Rock Band Kings Ransom, and have also performed standup comedy.
