My Voice Experience

I've been recording for over 30 years. I began volunteering at the age of 14 at the "Youngstown Radio Reading Service", a non-profit radio station whose market is print-impaired individuals. Programming material consists of pre-recorded magazine articles and periodicals, books, and theatrical presentations. Live readings of local newspapers occur nightly. My college internship was personality/control board operator at Y.R.R.S. After college, I became Sr. Editor at Creative Group Video where duties include writing, producing, shooting, editing, and ultimately voicing TV/radio comercials,educational/employee videos, and other misc. video productions. I was employed at a local CBS/FOX affiliate where among other production duties, I performed voice work for TV/radio commercials.
