Rich, authoritative, bright, and positive
From my college days until the early 1980's, I DJ'ed at rock, underground, and country radio stations. I also hosted a half hour local interview TV show.
Since then, I've guest hosted real estate radio call in shows, and starred in a 30 second intro to a relocation video.
The point is, I know how to use my voice to SELL stuff. It's FRIENDLY, BRIGHT, CHEERFUL, and conveys a strong sense of TRUST. If that's the kind of professionalism you are looking for... well, you've found it!

My Voice Experience
Voiced commercials for B. F. Goodrich Company Owned Tire Stores (Houston, TX), Chick-Fil-A (Birmingham, AL), DeSharpe Auto Body and Paint Shop (New Orleans, LA), Mayer Jewelers (Atlanta, GA), among the hundreds of others.
Voiced, wrote, and produced the promotional voice package for WUAL-FM (Tuscaloosa, AL).
Worked as DJ for WVSU-FM (Birmingham, AL), WUAL-FM (Tuscaloosa, AL), WTBC-AM/ WUOA-FM (Tuscaloosa, AL).
Provided voice talent for WERC-AM/FM (Birmingham, AL), WZGC-FM (Atlanta, GA), WTIX-AM (New Orleans, LA), WSOC-AM/FM (Charlotte, NC).
Five years as guest host for "Money Talks", a real estate call in show on WGST-AM (Atlanta, GA).
Now frankly, my sense of how to SELL with my voice came from four years telemarketing for small market radio stations, selling "cause" campaigns in such small towns as Boaz, AL, Alexandria, LA, Johnson City, and Chattanooga, TN. Having to make a sell an hour taught me to listen to the local accent and rhythm and emulate it. It's the ability to think in the manner that my target audience thinks that has made me a much better salesman.
