My Voice Experience

I began a "voice" career in radio as a teenager in the mid-50's doing character voices which led to my first real radio job. I spent many years as an on-air talent(discjockey, news, comm'l prod.) and moved into broadcast sales and mgmt, but continued to do commercial voice work for which I won numerous state/local awards in various AD Club competitions. I became general manager of several radio properties over the years, and again always did some voice work wherever I worked. I held my last management position for 18 plus years, retiring when property was sold. Since that time I've done basketball play-by-play and several narrations for home based businesses plus hosting national teleconferences for a humanitarian organization every week.I voiced a television documentary on wild horses(in character voice of old cowboy)in the mid 70's that appeared on several television stations and public tv outlets. Voiced hours of self-improvement teleseminars 2005-2011.

My Training

Attended Univ. of MT School of Journalism(minor in drama),graduate Northwest Schools of Broadcasting-Portland,OR, numerous RAB/NAB and local and state seminars. Appeared in the following motion pictures: "Far and Away","Josh and S.A.M.", "Love Comes to the Executioner". Have attended classes in auditioning for movies/television,

My Studio Equipment

Just building my studio....using an HP Pavlion computer with a Presonus "Firebox", MXL 990 Mic, ART Tube MP Studio, Radix TLM 500(telephone line amp/mixer which I

Additional Skills

I am easy to work with, can take direction, no ego problems. The client is the boss. Always willing to learn something new. My background in broadcasting and in my own retail/customer service business provided me with a great deal of knowledge that can be applied to doing voiceover work.
