My Voice Experience

I first started working with my voice on the radio. I worked 17 years behind a mike, mostly as a morning-man for "Zoo" kind of morning shows. Therefore, I started creating characters for thousands of humor bits for those shows.
During that "era", I also developed my skills, using my voice to record between 5 to 20 thirty-seconds spots daily. I also started working on TV, first for TV commercials, then for voice-over work on American or British shows dubbed in French.

I then went back to my roots: Acting. Which gave me even more opportunities to work as a voice talent as well! Actors that can also work with their voices are highly seek in many markets, as you might know. I did more and more voice over/dubbing work, so much that it rapidly became my first source of income way before I left the radio behind in 2007.

Today, I estimate that I did more than 2 000 humor bits, close to 10 000 local radio commercials, close to 1 000 national radio commercials, more than 500 one hour tv shows as a lead character or the main narrator (dubbing in french).

I am also the French Canadian voice talent with the most "live on tape" experience: In the last 18 months alone, I dubbed in French 299 one hour poker shows for NBC's "Poker After Dark", PokerStarsnet's "High Stake Poker" and "The Big Game". And the latter is still in session.

Some of the Major businesses I worked for:
- The Source
- Philips Medical
- Ford
- Vtech/AT&T answering systems
- Lexux
- MAC productions
- Kawasaki Canada
- Full Tilt Poker
- PokerStars
- The Miriam Fundation
- Mc Donald's

Some of the TV Shows I dubbed, either as the lead Character and/or as the main Narrator:
- Bizarre Foods (still in session).
- Ghost Hunters (3 seasons).
- Monster Nation.
- Reality Stars of Today: A look behind the scene.
- All the poker shows mentioned above.
- Also, I contributed to many tv shows as a recurrent Character of an episodical Character.
