My Voice Experience

My ability to mimmick voices was actually how I started in radio! From the political to pop culture, I can create a character or impersonation for your needs as I use them every day on my radio show. My work on my program has garnered the attention and reaction of many of the celebrities I mimmick...with local (Dallas/Fort Worth) examples being Dallas Cowboy players (in reference to team owner Jerry Jones voice) George W. Bush (now a resident in my market)and more. My voice(s) have been featured on nationally syndicated radio programs such as: CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan, John Boy & Billy Radio Show, Brad Paisley album release (2006)radio special, and more.

I have been in the radio industry for over 12 years for on-air work, production, vo's, etc. I can produce a finished piece with sfx, music & more.

Have worked free-lance for numerous companies, voicing everything from Employee training seminars to commercial work and more.

The possibilities are endless!
