My Training

Began as a dj on the campus radio station KDUP, University of Portland, Oregon. Continued in Army Service with American Forces Network as a dj in Orleans, France for two years (much like Good Morning Viet Nam) Just when I thought my career was ended and serious life beginning, got hired to do mornings at a tiny radio station in Gresham, Oregon. Then a buddy called and say if I wanted to work for peanuts, why not do it in Paradise---for a radio station---WIVI--in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands. Stayed for a year and allowed myself to be lured to St. Thomas for another year. Married and with a child and getting serious, I returned to Portland OR for mid-days in music and talk at KPOJ for seven years. And began getting hired to do voiceover work for commercials. Moved to KGW TV for morning and evening interview shows and an evening magazine format show. Hired by KING TV in Seattle for a 7PM interview show for another four years. Con-tinued some major freelance commercial voiceover work which proved vital when the station turned to another format and I was out. Moved to Atlanta where I've been happily and successfully living a life of freelance voiceover work ever since.
