My Voice Experience

In the last 20 years I've done commercial and promo work for affiliate TV, radio imaging and long-form narration and industrial work. I'm the Creative Services Director for Citadel's Washington, DC cluster. I voice and produce syndicated radio program imaging for affiliates in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. TV promo clients include KSTP (Minneapolis/St. Paul), WCMH (Columbus, OH), WUPV (promo voice) and WWBT (lead commercial voice) both in Richmond, Virginia. I've also become the go-to voice for agencies in Dallas (Luther Automotive Group, Randall Reed) Washington, DC (voice of Washington National Opera, others), Richmond, Virginia (voice of McGeorge Toyota, Innsbrook After Hours concert series, Honda House, others), and eastern Pennsylvania (the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, Bryce Jordan Center).

I look forward to putting my experience to work for you as well.
