My Voice Experience

It all started when I volunteered at my local free media internet radio station and found out that I could fulfill one of my lifelong dreams of being on the radio. I started writing and producing a weekly PBS type show on the culture, traditions and music of New Orleans. I have been doing that for three years now. As a published writer, I also write and perform the station's public service announcements. The station is at www.ashevillefm.org.

I have done several studio demos with a local studio.

I recently started auditioning using my home studio with VOPlanet and voices.com where I have been "favored" by the writer of an audio book.
