My Voice Experience

I have been told that my voice is so clear and my diction so crisp, that it causes people to have to pause what they are doing, to hear the message. When producing, the ideas for what would go best, music and voice comes very fast. I can hear the the finihed product before it's done. Then I work back to the beginning to achieve what I just heard. The results surpise even me when I hear it back for the first time!

I have recorded vingetts for Black Hstory Month, Insurance company driving tips, and more. I work at WNAP in Norristown and lent my voice and production, for the Tri State region for the past 12 years. Many of the commercials I have produced have been used at other radio stations in the same market by virtue of the advertiser spending some of there advertising dollars there and asking for the same commercial I made for another station. A few stations using my voice are: WIMG 1300AM Trenton, WURD 990AM Phila, KYW News Radio 1060AM Phila, Trenton Talks TV 25, Trenton.

My Training

I was trained on the job at my first job at WZZD 990AM, Lafayette Hill, PA. I had some formal training at NBS Radio, a now defunct company that offered voice and production, in 1981.

I got started by spending $85 at a well known recording studio, Morning Star Studio, in Springhouse, PA. I took a few albums to the studio, told the engineer what I wanted, which was to intro and outro a few songs, read a couple PSA's and give a bit of comentary on each song. The resulting mixdown and mastering took about an hour. I took that tape, made copies, sent them to a radio station with my little bit of training at NBS Radio and the rest, as is said, is history.

I honed my speaking and diction skills by becoming a member of and attending a few session of the Toast Masters, in Collingwood, NJ

For the past three years, I have been the MC and talent coordinator for Psamistry, which is a non profit entity based in the inner city of Philadelphia.

Additional Skills

I have acted in and did voice over work for Tri Cross Recording. I lend my voice from time to time to post- production work to a series of short films that the company is currently shooting. The company is building a strong following and background in film and music industry.

When you tell me what you have in mind, I take that information and produce it to your exact specifications.
A part of me is imprinted on the project, therefore, the workmanship relects pride, care, attention, and at all times, professional intent. Your project will yield results, whatever your message.

I have utilized software from the Windows 95 era to Mac to Pod Casting.

I look forward to your project!
