My Voice Experience

As a Duly Sworn Justice of the Peace, I am able to legally perform wedding ceremonies in all 169 towns and cities in the state of Connecticut and I will happily do so for any and all who wish to be joined in marriage.

Very early on in my career, I learned…that it’s not so much what you say, but how you say it! It’s simple, as an ADDY & Telly Award winning Voice Actor, I absolutely love what I do and I’m sincerely grateful every day I get to do it. Since way back in 1977, I’ve been fine-tuning my craft as a Voice & Production Talent, while providing copywriting and marketing expertise as well as the voice(s) on literally thousands of projects ranging from radio & television commercials, imaging & jingles, film & video narrations, to websites & telephone systems heard throughout North & South America, Europe, The Middle East and Australia.

Between 1977 & 1995, I enjoyed my time as an On-Air Talent with WRCH Lite 100.5 FM – New Britain/Hartford, WWYZ Country 92.5 FM – Waterbury/Hartford, WWYZ Natural 92.5 FM – Waterbury/Hartford, WIZD Wizard 104 FM – Atmore/Mobile, AL, WIOF Magic 104 FM – Waterbury/Hartford, WXLS Stereo 98 FM – Willimantic.

From 1996 through 2014, I was a Contracted Announcer with ESPN…The World Wide Leader in Sports! I was responsible for voicing a wide variety of Sports Promos & Imaging for programming aired on the ESPN Family of Networks. To this day, I’m still Voicing Promos for ESPN on a freelance basis.

Inspirational Speaker, Writer, Vocalist, Host & Master of Ceremonies for countless events throughout the years involving various local clubs, schools & organizations as well as the March of Dimes, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Disabled American Veterans, American Heart Association, Myasthenia Gravis Foundation, American Parkinson Disease Association & Red Hat Society.

A pretty funny guy, who’s not too hard to look at either…that is, with the right lighting and from the right distance.

Singer, Songwriter & Poet for over 35 years, performing as lead singer with a few music groups, as well as performing solo, some days just in the shower.

I am truly in my element when singing and I look forward to performing every chance I get! So, please be sure to check out my vocal demos, too. I enjoy singing the National Anthem along with other patriotic & inspirational songs at numerous civic, military, private & public gatherings. Throughout New England, New York, New Jersey & Pennsylvania, performances have occurred at all school levels, weddings, funerals, concerts, marathons, sporting & Olympic events as well as political conventions and rallies for U.S. Senate, Congressional & Presidential candidates. So, if you’re in need of a vocalist to help make any occasion truly special or maybe even to sing on your new jingle, I'm your man!

My mission is to continue living life to the fullest and donating my talents & time in order to make a positive difference in the world around me.

From offering the most innovative marketing ideas, to writing and producing radio & television commercials, voicing multi-platform product and training presentations & complete telephone systems, to creating messages on-hold and producing website welcomes, I am more than prepared to make it happen for each and every client. Working with companies large & small, I pride myself on consistently getting the job done in record breaking time and at a cost that makes $ense for everyone. Thank you!

All the best,
Greg
