My Voice Experience

Have always "sold by voice" and made the listener
"see" what was happening. Voiced most of the "Motown album radio spots when such things were popular in the 70's including the "Lady Sings the Blues" series with Diana Ross. Have been the ID voice for several radio stations in many formats. Can provide special voice based on the description of the subject visual apperance.

My Training

Have been a broadcast journalist since the age of 13 and have done radio production for the same amount of time. Am now 58 years old so by this time I think I know what I am doing! I teach media traning for Chicago Fire officials as well as voice training specials for use in the department and for public education on fire awareness and escape. I am a member of AFTRA but have been listed as inactive since 1985.

My Studio Equipment

Additional Skills

I do audio recovery work using specialized software to " dig out" audio for legal research or case preparation. Including audio clean-up of low grade sources like 911 phonme calls. I enhanced calls in the case of the 69 west Washington fire in Chicago and the Fuincess Chicago fire both of which needed extreme audio doctoring to recover 911 phone call information under high noise situations.
