My Voice Experience

Broadcast and Internet radio, voice-overs, books-on-tape, audio tours, internet audio and video...

I've done them all and continue to do most of them.

--My voice work began as a reporter for National Public Radio, voicing my own news stories, features, and documentaries.

--I've also narrated books-on-tape for Simon & Schuster and Prentice-Hall. And I've done voiceovers for documentaries, PSAs, corporate and educational video.

--While a producer of the live radio program, New York Kids on WNYC in New York, I played a variety of fun and offbeat characters in dramatic scenes, from an oxygen molecule to a Mel Brooks-like old man reincarnated as a cat!

--In my best sincere, warm, and friendly voice I voice audio tours for art and history museums, including current tours at the New York Historical Society and Grand Central Terminal.

--I can also write audio tours and specialize in language that's free of jargon and is friendly to the listening ear.

My Training



My Studio Equipment

I have a production studio in my building and can record, edit, and mix audio and video production.
For audio, I use a Shure SM7 mic and Pro Tools software on a Mac Book Pro.

I can also do field recording for interviews or sound effects and ambience.

Additional Skills

I'm flexible and can fit many formats, both commercial and non-commercial. I enjoy working for non-profits and on educational projects. My goals in life are simple: do good, avoid evil, use media creatively to help others when I can -- and get paid too.

I have radio experience as a reporter for NPR, a host of an internet radio program for teachers on Scholastic.com, and the producer of kids radio for broadcast and internet.

I've also taught and worked with teachers for years so I have a understand the needs of educators and educational projects.
