My Voice Experience

I have done voice work off and on since 1975 when I was a radio stringer for two local stations, KSLM and KGAY in Salem, Oregon. In 1977 I took my first post-high school job as a disk jockey at KSLM,ad worked other DJ jobs for a few years thereafter.

I the late 80's I did voice work for some educational software programs, most of them by Magic Quest (defunct) of Palo Alto, CA.

More recently I have recorded audio books for librivox, including works of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and sections of the Koran. I recorded the phone system messages for The Workhreat Group of Newport Beach, CA, and for Henley-Putnam University in San Jose, CA.

I was also the online host for a series of audio teleconference briefings sponsored by Henley-Putnam dealing with current issues in national security, and I recently recorded the voiceover portion of a television commercial scheduled to begin running in the Washington, DC market.

Most recently I have recorded a series of short promotional tags for New Spectrum Radio (New Spectrum Foundation).

My Training

Informal training and mentoring by Terrence Fuller, KSLM, 1975-77 when I worked as a news stringer and, in 1977, a DJ/news reader.

Acting major, Ricks College, Rexburg, ID, 1977-78. Received formal voice training. Also worked at the college radio station, KRIC, where I had my own classical music program.
