My voice is multifaceted and flexible, capable of a very broad range of vocal expression. Though I'm a middle-aged male, I can impersonate everyone from a little baby or toddler to a deep, adult male voice.I can also do female voices, accents, and celebrity impersonations, including presidents.

My Voice Experience
I have spent several years in the radio industry, including on the air as a talk-show host. During that time, I've recorded commercials and promos, PSAs, including one where
I sang the jingle, too.
I've also done standup comedy at various Chicago clubs, including the Comedy Womb, Zany's, and Barrel of Laughs.
I earned a B.S. in Speech from Northwestern University. My actual major was called Interdepartmental Studies; though my focus was Performance Studies, which included oral interpretation of literature and other texts.
I also took a few theatre courses with a wonderful professor named Rives Collins, who taught storytelling and creative drama. While I did not take any journalism classes, I am a published author and have extensive experience in public relations and media consulting. I just started a partnership with five other people called Phoenix Media Alliance, www.phoenixmediaalliance.com.
