My Voice Experience

I've worked in radio since the age of 3, when I recorded my first commercial. I've been a beautiful music announcer, top 40 disc jockey, talk show host, sports play-by-play announcer, and have performed (as a narrator) several pieces with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra including "Lincoln Portrait," "The Snow Man," and "Gardens of Stone." I am the voice of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra for all television commercials. I have narrated numerous educational and instructional videos for UW-Cooperative Extension, was the narrator on the children's CD "Bullfrog Banjaree" which won a Children's Music Webb Award. I played Orson Welles in a stage production of War of the Worlds, and have acted in or narrated several other radio dramas. I have a one man show "An Evening with Charles Dickens," where I read "A Christmas Carol," to a live audience. I also appear as Edgar Allen Poe in an annual celebration of his work produced by the Superior Public Museums. I appear in the Big Top Chautauqua Christmas Show reading Dickens' "Christmas Carol".

My Training

My parents were both in radio, so I started working in the business at an early age. I did my first voice over work at age 3 and became a "dj" in the 9th grade. I have worked in or around radio for most of my life. I have a B.S. in History from UW-SUperior (1975) and an M.S. in Mass Communication from UW-Superior (1984). I work with television stations in the Duluth-Superior market who have reporters in need of help interpreting copy.

My Studio Equipment

ADK A51 Audiophile Series large aperture condenser microphone, Tapco mixer/mic pre-amp, Card Deluxe audio card, Adobe Audition 1.5 software package, Bose monitor speakers, StackTraxx Music Library and sound effects.

Additional Skills

I work fast. I do cold reads. I take direction well. I am customer focused -- if you're not happy, I'm not done. I've been a college teacher since 1984 and have taught many students the art and science of audio production, media writing, and announcing. Local news directors send young talent to me to teach them how to read copy -- I generally end up teaching them as much about writing as about reading.

There are a lot of people with skill in this business. I have talent to go with it.
