My Voice Experience
For over 20 years I ran the gamut of radio formats-mostly in New York and LA, working full time for Power 106 FM LA, Hot 97 NY, Kiss FM NY, CD101.9 FM and Sirius Satellite Radio--plus I've been on the air in Tokyo continuously since 1991. Along the way, I've worked hand in hand with clients as varied as BET to being the voice of the Female Condom, JW Marriott, The National Lung & Blood Institute and the U.S. Army-- to doing software projects for Black and Decker, Dun & Bradstreet, Houghton-Mifflin, Aruba Tourism, ABC and CBS TV, Audi, Walgreens, PaperMate, Pfizer, Novartis, Astra Zeneca and many more.
I specialize in long, difficult copy (medical and scientific copy are my forte) and have enjoyed doing campaigns for ABC TV (Desperate Housewives, Walgreens, Audi, Aruba Tourism) Polygram TV, HCTV, CBS TV, Chef Daniel Boulud, HealthNet Radio, countless top market FM radio station promos, and hundreds of IVR and corporate presentations from my ISDN-equipped broadcast quality studio.

My Studio Equipment
Zephyr X-Stream, Mackie 1402-VLZ Pro, 14-channel
mic/line mixer with premium XDR mic preamps, Focusrite Scarlett interface, Mac Mini, ProTools 8.0, Twisted Wave editing software, Sennheiser MKH416 Shotgun Mic Fostex 6301B monitor, Shure SM7 mic, and Audio Technica 3035 condenser mic, Avalon 737 processor.
In radio, I was always known as "sales' secret weapon" since I could help land the client, write the copy, edit poor copy, offer ideas for improvement, point out errors, and make any project sound like a million bucks. Now, as a studio owner,I listen very carefully to clients' directions to give each project the exact approach they're looking for, and to always deliver "a cut above."
My clients have become like family and have honored me with 96 per cent return business.
My experience as a public speaker and PowerPoint Presenter keeps me on top of verbiage and current
techno-jargon, and my four years of Latin helps mightily
when it comes to reading and pronouncing medical, technical or scientific copy. Engineers love working with me because I give them so few edits and call me a "one-take wonder."
I've been taking voiceover workshops for the past several years in order to stay current with the approaches and styles today's advertisers want. I can give you the corporate polish, the girl next door natural approach, or give you radio hype if you require it.
I'm looking forward to breathing new life into your next project!
