I have a natural, friendly and smooth read, but I can also turn it up a bit and deliver harder announcer read or a sarcastic or snarky read. I've been in the business for over 20 years, mostly specializing in creative voice and production for major market and network radio. I can handle your commercials and promos with a believable and personable read or with more punch for a harder sell. When you're looking for professional, personal and honest approach for your Radio or TV spot/promotion, Internet Podcast or business presentation, I'm a natural choice with a natural voice. I can also handle your Imaging, Cartoon, Documentary, Audiobook, Educational, Telephone, Corporate Narration, Flash Presentations, E-Learning, On-Hold Messaging and other audio production needs. I specialize in radio and TV imaging and can handle the entire production project.

My Studio Equipment
ProTools, Octavia, Sure SM5 microphones. More outboard equipment than you can shake a stick at. Music, sweep and SFX libraries. Files can be uploaded to my password protected FTP site.
I'm a Geek. Had my first Mac in '87 and have been using ProTools since 1.0. I'm a Apple Certified Support Professional and Certified Technical Coordinator. I'm also an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist and songwriter, one of my passions. My background also covers many years as a radio programmer (mostly talk),talk host and morning jock in major markets including Miami, Dallas, Detroit and New York. I've overseen the Creative Services for the launch of network radio including: The Tom Joyner Show, Radio Disney, Greenstone Media Women's Radio Network and numerous projects for Sabo Media in New York as VP of New Media. I'm sure I could come up with more, but that's enough... ha.
