Additional Skills

I have 17 years of certified personal training and fitness professional experience and over 16 years working on the restoration of classic, sports and luxury vehicles, keeping me well versed in the languages of human and automotive mechanics.
Plus, one year in vehicle sales including on camera cable commercials which I still do for a dealership.

When it comes to script reading, my thought pacing is excellent, resulting in a realistic, natural sound.

Script writing and slogans are fun for me to create and I'm more than willing to help out with that aspect of a project. I wrote the copy and chose the music for my Faux Jaguar Ad, XK's Unlimited's on-hold message and Kippers for Breakfast demos.

Soccer has been a passion of mine for over 35 years and I still participate in a Men's league team making me the perfect candidate for video game commentary, radio or TV, or for advertising upcoming soccer programming.

Nature, wildlife and archeology are favorite pastimes of mine making me an ideal choice for documentaries in these fields, with Attenborough-like enthusiasm.
