My Voice Experience

I have three decades of experience as an announcer. I started as a broadcast journalist, reporting and anchoring radio news. I also have many years of experience as the announcer for a major university marching band, as emcee before live audiences for concerts, and as stadium/arena announcer for basketball and lacrosse. In addition, I have done "Voice of God" announcing for large conferences and formal events, narration over major musical compositions, and narration for corporate videos, educational programs and in-house documentaries.

My Training

I have a Bachelors Degree in communications, majoring in Radio-TV-Film. After five years in broadcast journalism, I have spent much of my career in public relations, media relations and government affairs but continue announcing as an avocation. As a musician I have played piano, clarinet, oboe and bass clarinet.

My Studio Equipment

I use Rode Podcaster USB microphone and Sony Sound Forge editing to audition from my home studio. For complete studio production I can work from a professional studios in Chicago and its suburbs.

Additional Skills

As the announcer for a major university marching band, I have performed on national TV, at bowl games, and for audiences exceeding 100,000 fans. As the announcer for a summer music festival, I emcee concerts before live audiences. Coupled with my experience in music (I've played piano, clarinet, oboe and bass clarinet), I have an outstanding sense of timing and an ability to read and respond to audiences. My "Voice of God" announcing is top-notch, especially for formal occasions. I am an excellent writer and editor and can help improve all forms of copy. My many years of experience in public relations, media relations and government affairs have given me a wide understanding of topics, issues, public policy and advocacy, particularly in the fields of health care and insurance. I bring a sense of professionalism, maturity and commitment to excellence in all that I do.
