My Voice Experience
30 years of on-air radio on-air and production experience have taught me the art of vocal acting. Living in various areas of the United States has taught me the subtleties of regional differences in inflection and vocabulary. I speak Spanish as a second language, so correct pronunciation of Spanish names and locations comes easily. Major work includes Arizona Lottery (radio & TV) and Streets of NY Pizza (regional Arizona), and national spots for Premiere Networks.
30 years on-air radio experience in a variety of formats. 30 years radio commercial voice-over experience. Extensive experience writing and producing radio promos and commercials.
My Studio Equipment
Adobe Audition, Behringer XENYX 1202FX mixing board, and either an AKG Perception 220 condenser mic, or an older Shure SM58. Also own and can use a vintage (late 1940s) Altec 639B "birdcage" mic.
Most recent experience as Program Director and announcer for XM Satellite Radio "Seventies on 7" channel, including personally writing and producing most production for the channel.
