My Voice Experience

20th year in radio. Broad experience with commercial and imaging voiceover and production.

I have been at SiriusXM Radio for almost eleven years. In that time I have hosted thousands of shows, voiced hundreds of imaging pieces and promos, and, most recently, been one of the voice talents that many producers have selected to voice commercials for clients ranging from Jack Daniels to Toyota. Clients have gone out of their way to reach out to me and let me know how natural and effective I was in their spots.Skilled in Adobe Audition and copy writing as well.

I have also worked in radio in Winchester, Virginia, outside of Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Albany, New York.

My Training

Before SiriusXM, I worked at Siena College radio WVCR and studied Marketing Management there. Also obtained BS in Marketing at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Stayed with radio throughout.

In a never-ending quest to be better at what I do, I am now attending Voiceover Tune Up classes at Actors Connection in NYC with Stacy Seidel Tea and Paul Liberti. They are opening my eyes and ears to an even more emotionally-connected style of voice acting that I am already bringing utilizing to benefit my clients.

I have also attended several online webinars to further my knowledge and understanding of the business and how to most effectively serve my clients.
