My Voice Experience

I spent my childhood experimenting with my voice and creating character voices, a talent I have brought to my career in voice over and radio. I am currently the Program director and on-air radio personality with more than 15 years experience in all facets of radio programming.

As far as Voice over work I have done thousands of ads, both serious and character for local and national ads.
