My Voice Experience

I've been performing on radio and TV in Chicago and Dallas for my entire career.
From being a TV Pro-Wrestling announcer working with the likes of "The Bruiser", Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and the late Andre "The Giant" to doing live TV at the Winter Olympics for ABC to becoming a Talk Radio Host on stations WGN and WLS, my life has been spent in studios behind microphones. I came to Dallas in the mid 90's to host a syndicated Morning Magazine Radio Show for the USA Radio Network. Along the way I've also appeared in many commercials; notably a long running series of radio Pizza Hut spots that ran in Chicago for a two year run and industrial videos for Cardinal Health and Amoco Oil.
I also regularly do recording sessions where I cold read commercial copy.

Northwestern University - Radio/TV/Film Bachelor's Degree
Second City Chicago - Improv workshop classes
WGN Radio Chicago- Talk Show Host - Commercial Live Reads on air
WLS-TV Chicago (ABC) - Sports anchor/reporter - Live in studio segments and live reports from the field. Writing scripts and over-seeing editing.

Additional Skills

I'm getting experience in marketing in two areas.
Working with a manufacture concern that produces a commodity product which is getting me experience as a real "businessman" which certainly can come in handy creating a character who's in the world of business.

I also work in the world of technology, for Apple. It's the first time I've ever been in a retail environment so I now have the experience of being on both sides of a sales transaction. This has helped me become conversant with the newest and the best new technologies. I also now have a full line of "customer types" I can call on for characters as well as being able to truly be the sales person.

Payment Methods Accepted
