My Voice Experience

30 years of on-air radio on-air and production experience have taught me the art of vocal acting. Living in various areas of the United States has taught me the subtleties of regional differences in inflection and vocabulary. I speak Spanish as a second language, so correct pronunciation of Spanish names and locations comes easily. Major work includes Arizona Lottery (radio & TV) and Streets of NY Pizza (regional Arizona), and national spots for Premiere Networks.
