My Voice Experience

Improv was my start. Doing characters on stage. I had done this since class clowning. But I was now getting paid for it. Started in Miami. From this I began doing voices for local radio stations and ad agencies.

Weist-Barron, GS&B Advertising

Moved to Los Angeles and began writing and producing for Clear Channel's many syndicated satellite radio services. Another great opportunity to use my versatility with voices, from straight announcer to comedic characters.

Webisodes have been another resource to utilize, exercise and otherwise exploit the voice. I have written & performed for several:

Warner Bros. Online
Mondo Media
The Romp

I have also participated in cartoon projects for Dreamworks, Film Roman, Hanna-Barbara/Time-Warner and Klasky-Csupo.
