My Voice Experience

I have spent over 15 years behind a microphone as a Radio Host. In 1986 I won the Canadian Large Market Personality Of The Year Award. As a radio performer I have voiced thousands of commercials. This includes a wide array of clients covering many different delivery styles. Part of my job on air was to interview artists, live and on the phone. Artists interviewed include: Sting, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams, Steve Earle, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, Charlie Daniels, Mellisa Etheridge, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, Peter Tosh, Joan Osborne, John Hiatt, John Mellencamp, R.E.M, Neil Young and many many more.

My Training

Over the years I have taken many workshops for voice. I have worked with some of Canada's best audio production directors. Having them behind the board coaching/directing is invaluable training.

Additional Skills

After leaving radio in the late 90's I worked for a local advertising agency for 5 years as a Brand Strategist. This further developed my marketing skills. I have also owned a very successful mid-sized business in the Environmental field. This experience has given me understanding and empathy for my clients situations.
