My Voice Experience

I have been performing voice overs as part of my job in communications and as a freelance artist for over 20 years.

While a writer/director, I performed voice overs on programs used in marketing and training programs. I also recorded extensively for our company's phone response system - having been told that the tone and timber of my voice is perfect for this type of work.

As an independent artist, I have performed paid assignments for the Mass Dental Association public service radio spots aired regionally as well as for a Massage Chair in-store demo video played at Brookstones.

I thoroughly enjoy this work and specialize in personifying funny characters and both US and International accents - from an intimidating East Boston Mobster to a charming Mediterranean romeo.

I record at competitive rates, am easy to work with and can add value as an accomplished writer and director.
