My Voice Experience

I have made a living doing voice-over work for 30 years, including commercial radio voice-over, public radio voice-over,television commercial, promo and comedy voice-over, corporate videos and film voice-overs.
Some examples; I have worked for a number of years as both a DJ and news reader on canadian radio stations. This work included the recording of thousands of radio commercials and promos. I spent some time doing the daily promo breaks for a major market television station.
I produced, wrote and starred in my own radio comedy series for CBC in Canada for ten years, winning many awards. I also produced, wrote and starred in my own television comedy series on Canada's CTV Network, as well as producing, writing and starring in a number of other TV series for The Comedy Network and CBC Television. One of these series, for The Comedy Network, was a 13 episode series where we bought masters of old 1950's Dragnet episodes, stripping out the sound and recording a new soundtrack and voicetrack, providing all the male voices, to match the action on the screen. It was called "Dragnuts".
