My voice acting experience began in 1984 when I received my US Navy Wings of Gold. I was then required to provide briefing for flights, classroom lectures, and aerial techniques of flight.

Audiences for that phase of my voice acting ranged from the individual student to the class of 10-20 flight students as well as a wardroom of 20-30 officers.

I have been a USN flight instructor (in the A4 Skyhawk and S3 Viking).

I have been a staff officer on a 3 star US Navy Admiral's staff giving briefs to senior officers (stationed in Italy at Commander, Sixth Fleet; 3 star Admiral Staff and traveling all over Europe and the Black Sea), requiring me to be precise, timely, capturing, and successful under stresful situations.

I have been a college professor (teaching classes at UNC Chapel Hill,NC.).
