My clients can say it much better than I can:

As a kid, I had a knack for voices and impersonations...so I guess you could say it all started there and then continued through school (Speech Team, School Plays, etc.).
I used to be a Production Director for several Illinois radio properties. Not only would I voice many of the commercials, but also write, edit, produce and direct talent.
I wasn't your typical music over announcer "radio guy." I wanted my commercials to be effective for the client and also engaging for the listener. Whenever possible, there was a narrative involved that made the spot memorable and drove business to the advertiser.
Today, I'm working for myself. Recent projects have included commercial work, short films, industrial safety and corporate communication.
