My Voice Experience

I have been a professional voice over talent for years. I am also a voice over coach teacher and producer. Through the years I have done hundreds of commercials, narrations and political spots. In past electons, I was the voice for several political radio and TV ads for numerous candidates running for US Congress and State Senate and House for Arkansan, Mississippi and Alabama.

I have earned a living with my voice for over three decades. As a voice over talent and as a professional singer/entertainer, I have literally traveled the world performing my music. My voice over career began early, at age 18, working as a Disk Jockey for KSAM radio in Huntsville, Texas.

Here are a few of my clients:

I also have extensive experience in the recording industry and own an in house state-of-the-art studio.

My Training

I attended the University of Houston and Sam Houston State University, majoring in Architecture, however, I believe I have earned a masters degree from the "School of Hard Knocks" from my thirty plus years as a touring professional singer/musician, actor, producer and voice over talent.

I received extensive voice over training and coaching from Susan Berkley, Dan Levine and Brian Thon, Heather Costa and Michelle Falzon.
