My Voice Experience

I have a degree in radio, television and film. I love to write copy and voice what I write or what is already written.

Currently, I work at a Smooth/Contemporary Jazz Station in southern Orange County - KSBR Jazz FM 88.5.

I have produced tens of underwriting spots for the station and several more outside of it. I have finally found my passion for what I LOVE to do and I plan on making the best of this opportunity for a long time. Should you find my voice ideal for your particular need, rest assured you will get my focused effort and commitment to excellence on each and every project! My Best, Don James

Additional Skills

I have been in sales and marketing most my entire life; successfully selling unique and niched products and services. I am also an ardent listener and viewer of commercials and rarely change the channel when they appear so I can determine what kind of an impression they'll make on me the consumer. After all, when selling or marketing a product or service one must understand what will HOOK the audience. I feel confident in my abilities to make that connection in a face to face scenario or through electronic media applications. Selling AND believing in the product/service without sounding salesy is important not only in the media but in a regular day to day sales scenario. I can definitely see the improvement in my day to day sales results since my involvement in radio and the voice acting industry. I look forward to working with YOU and effectively promoting YOUR product or service!
