My Voice Experience

Most of my voice over work has occurred in a Public Radio setting. I joined Milwaukee Public Radio in 2006 and currently co-host a daily magazine show there, for which I also conduct interviews and produce and voice features. I have also been a news reader and music host for Vermont Public Radio between 1993 and 2000.

Additionally, I voiced a series of training videos for Comprehensive Language Center, Inc. in Arlington, VA in 2005. I narrated two independent films in New Hampshire in the mid-1990's and was the voice for an interactive computer program at Dartmouth College in 1994.

My Training

I have a BA in Drama from SUNY Purchase, and some post graduate work in theatre at UC Berkeley and Rutgers University. I took voice and speech classes at American Conservatory Theatre (ACT) in San Francisco.

I have also studied and performed music (instrumental and vocal) from the time I was 3 and have 15 years of hands on experience as a radio presenter and interviewer.

I am completely conformable using digital editing software to edit voice tracks as well as more complex multi-track mixes.

My Studio Equipment

I have daily access to a fully equipped studio at Milwaukee Public Radio, which includes a phone hybrid, as well as digital editing software. I also own a digital stereo/4-track hand held recorder for field use.

Additional Skills

I am comfortable talking authoritatively about a wide range of subjects: the arts, the media, foreign affairs, the military and defense contracting.

I am a four-year veteran of the US Army and I worked as a defense contractor in the Balkans for two years. I also spent three years with the US Foreign Service in Washington, DC and in Honduras.
