My Voice Experience

In 1984 I created a character named Mr. Leonard. It became one of the longest running characters in radio. It was syndicated in several radio markets including: New York, Houston Dallas and Philadelphia. I also performed the character for "The Scott Shannon Top-30 Count Down" that was heard all over the world. Although I love creating characters and doing different accents, I recently did a voice over for a student film. They wanted to know if I could sound like the voice in the "Go Forth" campaign for Levi's. I was very pleased when they said they got just what they wanted.

My Training

My training comes from starting in radio when I was 16 and working with some great people in radio and production and performing and recording 1000's of commercials, promos, comedy bits and VO's for more than 25 years.

My Studio Equipment

I use Adobe Audition for editing and have been a production director, so I do not have a problem adding music and fx to your project if need be. Most of the work I do is sent in mp3 or wave file formats via email.
