My Voice Experience

National voiceovers and imaging for radio and television FULL TIME since 1993. ALL FORMATS. In the radio business since 1977.

Prefer voice only but quality full production is also available.

Real time sounding voice tracking(ENCO) for radio.
Narrations, phone systems and regional spots as well as local on camera work.

My Training

I have been on live radio since 1977 and have been on air in Providence(RI), Boston, and now in New York.

Also a singer/musician since 1972.

My Studio Equipment

With current technology, my studio equipment has "shrunk" rather dramatically since I started in 1992 with my two Atari MK50-50 reel to reels (with grease pencils) and a room full of CD players, cassette decks and tape boxes...while it's capabilities have grown.

My studio has:

AKG C414b studio mic through a Pre Sonus processor.

Mackie 1604 ANOLOG board (Because of it's great pre-amps)

Adobe Audition- A super program with virtually every audio format capability and add on's galore.


My favorite leather armchair!

Additional Skills

Client service is very important to me and I have a track record to prove it.
Virtually ALL of my success as a full time voice talent can be attributed to referrals from people with Whom I have had the great pleasure and good fortune to have worked alongside over the years.
