I have been speaking to the general public through the mediums of radio, print, internet podcasts and in-person presentations for the last 25 years. Because I sold advanced computer systems for a decade I have the ability to talk persuasively with authority and to make technical information more digestible to the average person.
(Today - June 19th, 2014 - I joined "Such a Voice" for their professional instruction and two professional demo's. That is how strong my commitment to this industry really is.)
While I have not been as active in radio recently, during my career as a newspaper owner and publisher (2002) I recorded more than 100 different 30-45-60 second radio spots for advertisers, political parties, and non-profits.
I was recruited in 2011 by a client who specifically sought out my voice for the intro to her Spiritual
While I have a wide range of voices most often people comment on my naturally deep baritone sometimes described as similar to Don Lafontaine's. I specifically like the opportunity to do unique characters, like animals, aliens, and make-believe voices.

Between 2002 and 2008 I cut more than 100 thirty second radio spots for both commercial accounts and political parties. Recently I have returned to offering my VO services and did a free Ducks Unlimited spot for a local banquet last week.
While I have owned and operated a number of businesses, including a weekly newspaper, a commercial real estate brokerage & property management company, and 180-unit mini storage, I am also a lifelong cartoonist capable of doing life-like drawings, in pencil, pen, and color inks.
I am also a born art teacher who enjoys sharing my knowledge and skills with others. I also know how to manage, motivate and create team spirit.
