My Voice Experience

I have been voicing for almost thirty years. My early voice work was as a Staff Announcer for radio stations across Canada. During my time as a "disc jockey" I literally voiced thousands of commercials for clients. I picked up the ability to read a script one time, and usually got it right the 2nd or third read. Agencies that utilized my voice in Regina over the years, liked the fact that I was quick and very good. I take voice direction very well and can deliver any type of read you require. I hosted a few TV shows when I was younger. and in 2002 I voiced the 26 episode Great Cemeteries of the World, by Talking Dog and it ran across Canada on various channels, primarily the Mystery Channel. I have spent many years working with an associate in California voicing training tapes. He has contracted me over the years to read many technical documents. The training manuals have been turned into training videos and my voice has been used exclusively for Fibre Optic Lazer splicing videos and it's related equipment Corporate voice over presentations are my speciality.

My Training

My father worked at CFN in Germany during the 70's and I worked part time at the radio station when I was 14 years old. I had my own one-hour weekly radio show and learned how to read commercials by the CBC staff announcers that were stationed in Europe. I attended Humber College in 1977/78 and was the Most promising announcer for the class of 1978. 30 years of voice over work has polished my skills to a fine art.
