My Voice Experience

I worked at a University radio station years ago while studying for an MA in Mass Communications at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI. Some of my jobs there were: reading script for educational/instructional projects, classical music announcer, as well as doing station IDs and promos.

I later worked for 4 years as Supervisor of Announcers at WMBI-AM/FM in Chicago, where I did some children's dramatic radio work and program hosting, before moving to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to head up a new FM religious/educational, bilingual station. I worked there for more than 25 years as station administrator and did most of the English On-Air work for Radio Lumiere FM Stereo 92.

My wife and I retired from World Team,Inc. and returned to the US in the summer of 2004.

While working with Stereo 92, I wrote and voiced station IDs and program promos in English, prepared and delivered newscasts, produced programs and public service announcements, did staff training, managed a staff of seven, and worked as a board operator as necessary.

My Training

I have an M.A. in Mass Communications from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI.

Although I never took a class in "voice-overs" as such, I did study announcing for Radio and Television, which included diction, dramatic and interpretative reading, and news-casting, among other related courses.

I majored in English and minored in Music for my B.A.
from Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY. I took private voice lessons, and was a vocal musician and choir director for many years.

Along with English courses, some of my other undergrad classes included journalism and dramatic arts.

My Studio Equipment

At the moment, I have a Dell computer, Behringer XENYX 1204FX Mixer, Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Mic, and I use Audacity and Nero software to record and burn CDs.

Additional Skills

I grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada, and taught public school there before deciding to study radio broadcasting. I have also worked as a copywriter with the American Automobile Association of Michigan.
