My Voice Experience

At this point in my broadcasting career, I guess you could call me a Bay Area radio veteran. I was Morning Drive radio personality for KARA Radio in San Jose, CA for over 20 years. When KARA was sold and went Spanish, I did the midday show at 94.5 KBAY. I'm currently on the air at 95.3 KRTY, San Jose's Country Music Station, KKDV 92.1FM, 101.7FM KKIQ, and on the voice talent roster for Pandora Radio. In addition to my radio work, I regularly record voice overs from my broadcast quality home studio, with an increased focus on internet VO--for example, U.S. Rep.Gabrielle Giffords' and Raul Grijalva's website, and an assortment of Medical VO work for clients like Sutter Health, AARP, The Gibbs Cancer Center and Breast Health Center in Georgia, CPR training VO'S for Pyramid Media in Santa Monica, CA. and numerous other websites. During this 30 year period I have also done regular VO work for hundreds of clients. (Examples:Graham Tire in the midwest, Farmer's National Bank and even CitiBank Guam! Locally: Santana Row, Valley Fair Mall, Kiddie World, Solano Mall, Boardwalk Auto Center, Sleeptrain, Fertility Physicians, Vitamin Shoppe, Togo's, Eastridge Mall, Nutri System, Carpeteria, Color Tile, Conklin Brothers, Wireless World, San Francisco Honda AND MANY MORE!!!) There probably isn't a person in the entire Bay Area who hasn't heard my voice at some point.
