My Voice Experience

If you're looking for imaging, program and station identifications, or a friendly voice to make an emotional connection with those interested in the latest products and services, look no further. I am heard around the world and especially in the Eastern United States as the identification voice of Keep PounDENN, a Carolina Panthers podcast based in the Northeastern United States; this includes both program breaks and introducing the most popular segment, the Beer of the Week.

Additionally, I have written and performed a variety of promotional and informational announcements promoting new and established products and services that reach thousands of people daily. When product managers and retail sales leaders are looking to raise awareness about their key offerings, they turn to me to spread the word. I am directly or indirectly responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales each year for them, and I can do the same for you.
