My Home Base

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I am a straight announcer, with the abilities to do Midwestern drawls and a little Irish Brogue.

My Voice Experience

I am currently an announcer for the PBS stations in New York City, WNET & WLIW. My VO work extends to sports announcing (NCAA Soccer), and national point of purchase displays. From commercials for Levelor Blinds, Motorola, Pur Water Filters, and WaxVac to industrial work for General Motors, Siemens, Allstate, Merrill Lynch and Schering Plough, I have done thousands of VOs for clients of every stripe, you name it...you've heard it.

My Training

I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Telecommunications. I have had the best VO coaching available, from Joan Uttal Anderson, Ruth Franklin and Dorothy Runk Mennon. I started as a DJ for 6 years, and moved into TV, hosting two PM Magazines, and then moved to NYC to host World of Photography on ABC-TV. I then became a reporter at WNBC-TV & WPIX-TV, and put in a couple of years as staff announcer at WNET-TV, the flagship PBS station. I am a Media Coach in New York City, the number one media market in the the country, with clients as diverse as CEOs of top financial institutions and physicians on CNN.

My Studio Equipment

I have my own studio, and use the TLM 103 with ProTools 10 on a MacBook Pro

Additional Skills

I have spent my career in front of and behind the camera. I have written thousands of scripts for radio and TV, and voiced most of those. I can help get a spot hammered into shape, and know my way around the English language. If you watch TV or listen to the radio, you have heard my voice. My experience as a news reporter in New York City has served me well, teaching me how to do a variety of voice over work, from straight & informative, to cool & casual. My experience behind the mic and in front of the camera has allowed me to become a TV Field Producer, which I have done the last 7 years on Food Network's 'Diners Drives Ins & Dives'.
