My Voice Experience
I am a life-long voice actor with over 47 years of experience Twenty three years of which where in radio. Nineteen years working for ABC and Westinghouse owned-and-operated major market stations. I've worked for all the car companies in America. I have also worked for many medical establishments such as Henry Ford Hospital, McClarin Health Services,
Geisinger Health Systems, Huron Valley Hospital, Lewisburg Cancer Center, Pfizer and Schering-Plough. I'm a solid documentary narrator as well. I am the narrator
on "Discoving Secrets of the Vatican" and also, "Fishing
Boat Tordenskjord", for PBS.
After I graduated from Broadcast school, I worked locally in Pennsylvania radio. and in 5 years, went to work for ABC at WRIF(Detroit) and later, Westinghouse at WLLZ radio, also in Detroit as Production Director. I wrote and produced spots and presentations as well as branching out into freelance voice over work very early on. Voice over jobs very quickly became my dominant income and I left radio in the early '90's. I voice coached for ten
years as well. I now do voice over work all over the world.
My Studio Equipment
Pro Tools recording plus a high end, Sound Deluxe E-47 tube mic, fired by a high end, Universal Audio 6176 tube amp. I have phone patch and can send WAV, AIFF or mp3 files, online in a
matter of minutes as well as editing the project.
I was a voice coach for those just starting out as well as others who wanted to
improve their craft or who want to transition from radio into voice overs. Having a good voice is only a start. Anyone can read. However,if you can't act or interpret copy, you're as marketable as a nice looking car.....with no steering wheel.
