My Voice Experience

My previous work includes time spent as an on-air personality with Brooklyn College Radio, where I worked as a DJ, and also put together intros, 30 second spots, and PSA's for the station. I do two regular podcasts, Geekspeak and Comic Timing, where I display the full range of my conversational tone. A piece I voiced and edited, "Comic Books: Not Just For Kids Anymore" has aired in Summer 2006 on NPR in New Hampshire, and can be found at prx.org for download. I also worked as a broadcaster for the Brooklyn Cyclones A League Baseball team while a part of the Brooklyn College Radio Sports Team. I am currently a podcaster at my home studio, and have produced audio promos for my friends and colleagues.

My Training

I have a bachelor's in Television and Radio from Brooklyn College, and learned a great deal from the radio courses I took, along with time spent on and off the air at the radio station. I also have previous telemarketing experience, where I was taught to sound convincing and passionate in order to grab hold of customers and make them believe what you are selling.

Additional Skills

I have the ability to ad-lib when necessary, but also know the importance of reading from a script. I take criticism seriously, and am willing to take any sort of suggestions given to me into considering in order to better my performance. I pride myself on my writing ability, and have written my own material to read and record in the past. I am also experienced with audio editing, and am proficient with Adobe Audition, SAWPro Editing Suite, and Audacity.
