My Voice Experience

In 1978, I became licensed by the FCC to professionally broadcast my voice to the masses. That little piece of paper led me down the path of craziness which grew into to a frenzy of overnight stardom and radio fame. (lol) Eventually I scored an afternoon radio drive-time job,where anyone who has ever worked in radio will tell you, is not as "celebrity-esque" as it sounds – to be successful, you must wear many hats.
My radio career began at these fine stations, all in California:
KSM FM (San Marcos, CA), KVEN-KHAY(Ventura, CA), KBBY (Ventura, CA);KOWAM/KOWFM (Escondido, CA); KMLO (Fallbrook, CA);Y-95 (San Diego, CA) KKOS, KCEO (Carlsbad, CA)
The hats I've worn during what I call "The Roller Coaster Years" include: Radio Personality, Copywriter, Music Director, PSA Director, Production Coordinator, Traffic Coordinator, Associate Television Producer, Disc Jockey, Talk Radio Host, News Reporter.

I've voiced narrations for Palomar Mountain Observatory's “Galaxy Sky Show"
I won an award for Story Telling at the Temecula Public Library;
National commercials include WD-40, Sears, Living With Diabetes, Hallmark, Calgon, Hefty/Glad Bag, Eau Derrier Shape Wear, Visitors Bureau of Mono County, and Booti-licious Fitness
