My Voice Experience
I started my VO career doing local radio spots in Des Moines Iowa in the early 80's. I worked in LA but moved to Denver Colorado in 1985. My voice-over career took off in the mid to late 80's doing national and regional spots for McDonalds, Western Ford Dealers and local and regional commercials for the Colorado Lottery, Fox Network, The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News, Village Inn, and jingles with my award winning vocal group, "The 17th Avenue Allstars." for McDonalds and local businesses.
I did my undergraduate training at the Pennsylvania State University and graduated with a BS in Education with English and Theater certifications. I worked on my Masters degree at Brandeis University in their professional Actor training program. During my time in Los Angeles, I studied commercials with Hap Lawrence, voice over with Mason Adams, film technique with Laura Rose, and stage training at Amercian Theatre Arts. I make my living as a performer and acting coach as well as auctioneer for benefits and charities. My group "The 17th Avenue Allstars" are 1993 National A Cappella Champions.
