My Voice Experience

I've written, voiced and produced thousands of radio spots, on-air imaging and promos over a 25 year period. I've voiced hundreds of tv spots, ranging from auto dealerships and supermarkets to publications like TV Guide. I've also recorded magazine articles for listening over the internet, narrations for the usage of the Aegis defense system for training purposes, narrations for pharmaceutical companies for the application of various drugs and other similar training films, many with very technical verbiage.

My Training

25 years as a Philadelphia on-air radio host, as well as serving as production (or assistant) production director at several stations. I've emceed hundreds of live events at various indoor and outdoor concert venues, stadia, theatres, auditoria, arenas etc. For the past 6 years, I have hosted and produced a live, daily, 3 hour morning radio program, writing, voicing and producing all spots, bumpers, breakers, ids and imaging. I write all content for my website, and have had a number of radio and music-related articles and columns published in area newspapers.

My Studio Equipment

"Neumann TLM 103" microphone, connected via "M-Audio" midi to "Music XPC Professional" computer, specially built for audio recording. Easy-to use "Cool Edit Pro" recording and editing program. Custom-built studio with sound-proofing. Sound Ideas music and sound-effects library.

Additional Skills

My daily morning radio program ends at 10am, and my days are basically open at that point. I work out of my home studio and so I can offer a quick turnaround. Scripts/copy can easily be faxed or emailed directly to my studio. From the very beginning, when I started my own mobile deejay service (1982), to my first radio job at age 24 (1986)I have been self-taught all related skills, both in-front-of and behind the microphone. This includes emceeing and hosting, voice usage and annunciation, music programming, copywriting etc.
