My Voice Experience

My Broadcasting and voice over work has been a taste of many flavors.

I have thus far worked in a wide range of voice and production work including some work for the syndicated radio show The Animal Radio Network,
Ring Announcer for Tri State Wrestling on the Burlington Vermont UPN TV affiliate,
co-host of TSW's Internet show "Inside The Ring",
Ring Announcer for Superstars of Pro Wrestling in Albany NY. I also played the role of flamboyant Color Commentator "Lance Romance".

I have also created and produced a highly successful comedy show during my time at college.

In 2006 wrote, partly performed and fully produced a comedy CD called "LMAO!" which is currently selling since 2006 on many sites including amazon.com

Currently - producer and host of seasonal 80s retro show
"Were Living in The 1980s" which airs Fall

My Training

I broke in to the industry the "ye olde fashon way..."
i apprentenced myself to a local station in town and had a wonderful Mentor...

I started at the very bottom answering phones,taking messages and fetching peoples lunch as a non paid intern.

As both a narrator and spot voice over artist, I've been featured in alot of voice job projects since 1998.

I was mentored by a wonderful gentleman who gave me my first break in broadcasting... and as time rolled on
4 radio stations later i learned how to turn out excellent productions in which i have voiced spots for
things ranging from food to cars...

I am experienced with being on air keeping people entertained with short but sweet talk that's informative and fun running a tight show back selling, pre selling, voice overs, imaging,writing original copy and more.

My Studio Equipment

I keep it simple and effective... i am very knowledgeable with cool edit pro 2.0...
some have made the switch to others but cool edit is my trusty pal and together we have made a lot of magic.

I have changed mics many times over the last few years so hard to keep which one is which...
To be honest my current mic could be better but there are some sound filters in cool edit that allow me to produce high quality sound either way...

Need a few more gigs before i can really bump up to the latest mic out there. ( Just being honest ).
However i have never had any complaints from any paid clients as i am very particular about any piece of finished sound released under my name.

Additional Skills

Can also do:
movie trailers
promos
narrations
books on tape

celebrity impressions
created voice characters

Quick turn around time for mp3 delivered via email or WAV! Improvisation, characters and dialects galore. I take direction easily and can fine-tune a character voice quickly.
