I have incredible work ethic and I am easy to work ego here..just a get it done professional attitude...

My Training

When I started in the radio industry in Tampa, I was able to spend lots of spare time in the production studio at one of Tampa's Top stations. Having been blessed with a great voice, good ear and good hands, I was fortunate to become a protege' of some of radio's best voices and producers who I will not mention here but would be glad to tell you in person. Let's just say several of these great talents are still the premiere voices/producers today. I spent 15 years as a talent, voice-over specialist, producer and creative services director before I was promoted to the Executive level of Broadcast Management.
The last 8 years I have turned to my roots and I'm doing what I love to do most...GREAT VOICE-OVERS, VOICE-ACTING, NARRATING.. ETC....!
