Wayne's vocal qualities and his ability to succinctly articulate in a clear and understandable manner, garnered frequent comments from his peers, referencing his professional sounding voice. Although Wayne's professional career for many years was in Telecommunications and Information Technology, he was often asked to record telephone messaging, greetings and voice other commercial applications for businesses upon installation of phone systems. While in the employ of Computer Sciences Corp., Capital One, Advanced Technology Integration, & others, he was often called upon to narrate and create corporate and technical presentations.

Wayne began his career as a full time Voice Over Artist and Long Form Narrator In 2005, upon leaving the IT business behind. He attended the Columbia School of Broadcasting, receiving high marks in his studies and kudos from other Voiceover and Broadcasting professionals impressed by his vocal style. Subsequently, He took his Voiceover career to a higher level by hiring a voiceover coach, enlisting the services of 20+ year Voiceover veteran and Voice Over Coach, Terry Daniel.
