My Voice Experience
I have voiced and produced thousands of radio commercials for clients such as McDonalds,

My voice can be heard on ESPN Chicago Radio, WGN Radio, WLIT Radio, ESPN Los Angeles, ESPN New York, and others. My narrations have been used for Starbucks, The Chicago Bulls, and Miller Beer. My scripts and voice have been used for every single product category -- from autos to zoos, from banks to beers, from Mexican tourism to Scottish Golf.
I have a BA in Audio Production and Radio Broadcasting from Columbia College. I teach writing for Radio and advanced radio voice and production. I have taken courses with Dick Orkin, Dan O'Day and Roy Williams.
My Studio Equipment
I use Pro Tools and Adobe Audition. I use RE20 microphones. I am skilled at optimizing voice for AM radio. I can turn audio around in less than an hour.
If you are looking for someone to do as little as voice a script, to as much as write creatively, voice professionally, and sound design incredibly, i can be your guy. With over 20 years of audio experience and 10 years of voiceover experience, I can do it all and turn it around very quickly.
