My Voice Experience

Radio/Voice Over
As a broadcast student in Indiana I was able to develop the general American announcer voice style for national advertisements. I also gained some experience using effects for grandiose openings with TV productions and live events.

After college, working for several radio stations, I enjoyed creating copy and performing them using a number of approaches. Some of these were the oversell "call now" punch, the sympathetic "feed the children" approach, the casual "every day" ordinary guy, and the "old wise professor" style. I tried to stay away from the predictable questions "Do you have a plumbing problem?" approach and create a scenario with the answer.

I wrote and produced most of my spots. Many of them were translated from english to Spanish.

Film/Video actor
I performed:

As a doctor in a UMASS medical video on diabetes. (long length)

As a driver without a seatbelt for the MASS State PSA Spanish version of "Click it or Ticket" (60 sec)

As a parcel delivery man in a Spanish language instruction video,( one volume in a series).
