My Voice Experience

My voice over experience goes back to My Radio days in small market Radio in Central Wisconsin and part time Television cameraman/voiceovetalent(unofficially)..

Producing and editing a ":30 second Spot" on magnetic tape, and splicing became an art in itself and I was actually an-on-air personality!! I kept most of my "samples" on cassette tape! But found a way to convert them digitally.
My "Dream Career" lasted about 7 years, if you want to figure in Continuing Education. Life's journey took me to out of the Broadcast field and to a place where I depended really depended on my Voice. How I used it would either command attention or lose control.I took a job working in the field of Juvenile Corrections. I started out washing dishes, peeling vegtables and moping Floors. Working side-by-side with some serious Juvenile offenders... I gave up Broadcasting for the opportunity to work in a Secure Juvenile Corrections Facility Main Kitchen. After fours years on KP duty I expanded my resume with thirteen and a half years as a Youth Couselor. . This was not in my plan. A prison setting of all places!!...Flash forward to present day...Newly retired from a 17 years career in Juvenile Corrections.
I'm a Dad of two grown Daughters and now a GRANDPA!.. Now there's great training grounds on how to use your voice! I'd like to think that my voice is a work in progress....It's time I started using my voice for fun again, Yes fun! With your help we can work together...If you'd like to hear more. Stay tuned...

"Yousendit" account for file transferring.

I have a file "DROPBOX" that I used during my training sessions...

I also am one one of the few that uses a Blackberry Bold as my Mobile Phone.

Additional Skills

I am easy to get along with and willing to take direction. I can show emotion. My life experiences have given me the confidence to interpret copy have insight to show emotion.

My experience and training have given me first hand experience working with all types of people in either Juvenile Corrections or Broadcasting. Verbal communication was a major part of my job. I also gained a command of my voice by having the wonderful experience of parenting of two daughters.

The working conditions were extreme. As a "Voice Over Artist" or by "Youth Counselor" My voice was used either to get your attention harshly or peacefully. how I used it gave me the background to be able to use my voice in either extreme situations....and more.

Being able to work with many personality types is also one of my strengths.

More life Journey has taken me to this point in my life. Voice over work "back in day" was not possible or impossible for a an average guy, like me. But with technological advances even I can live out a Passion.
