My Voice Experience

Formerly with Warner Bros Studio Stores performing Looney Tunes voices for patrons. Created over 25 characters for Children's book series. Have been doing Radio & TV commercials since 1980. Was an On Camera announcer for a weekly Motorsports TV show (5 years), playing a wild and colorful character with a blazing, machine gun style delivery. Also have done several voice impersonations for commercial clients throughout the US and Australia.

I really enjoy the challenge of creating characters for animation and children's stories.

My Training

Was musically trained by an accomplished Classical Musician & singer from a very young age. Music studies continued into College. Immediately after High School, I began radio & TV broadcasting training. After graduating I began working for 2 stations doing radio production, promos, commercials, etc. Continued with voice training with music and voice over work.

Having both kinds of voice training, gave my voice strength and flexibility that was crucial to my development as a voice talent.

Recording voice projects on tape has taught me a wealth of knowledge. Specifically, concerning the differences between the sound of analog and digital voice production.
