I developed an interest in speech and drama early in life. Got my first "on air" radio job when I was just 17 years old. I went on to spend twelve years as a full time radio announcer, on-air personality and listener relations specialist. I worked for a total of five radio stations during that time in the Austin,Texas and San Antonio, Texas markets.
I've also done some booth announcing at KVUE-TV-the NBC affiliate in Austin and appeared on camera at KLRN-TV and KMOL-TV in San Antonio and appeared in an interview segment on "The Peoples Court in New York City.
My voice over experience includes-
voice overs for both radio and television
Internet Voice overs
I have extensive experience in multi-track recording and mixing.
I am a published songwriter with songs published through The Paramount Group-Nashville, Tennessee, Hollywood Artists Records-Los Angeles,Ca. and Hilltop Records.
I was fortunate to have the chance to interview many well know country artists during my radio career both at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville and back home in San Antonio. I had the chance to talk with legends like Hank Thompson and Conway Twitty as well as Reba McEntire, The Judds, Eddy Rabbit, The Kendals, Exile and others. I also MC'ed many concerts introducing everyone from George Straight to Alan Jackson, Dwight Yoakam and Randy Travis. I interviewed Alabama at the Farm-Aid Concert in Austin Texas.
I wrote,performed and produced "on-air jingles for my weekly Texas music radio show called "The Lone Star Hour". This was a show that I created and hosted that featured live performances "on-air" by artists from Texas. It was simulcast on AM and FM live from the Farmers Daughter for a year and enjoyed a five year run on Great Country 68 KKYX AM.
I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to create many memorable and enriching experiences in my career and I look forward to a new and exciting chapter through my association with Voices.com that will produce many more!
I studied Real Estate, Marketing and Negotiations in College with the greatest emphasis placed on Marketing and how to attract the targeted demographic through customized ad campaigns.
This is a skill I had already been honing during my 12 years of real world experience in the broadcast media.
I also believe in continuing education as a way to improve my voice over and presentation skills. Some of the topics of my continuing education include...
How to be a better public speaker
The three "ates" of proper speech, enunciate,articulate,communicate.
Multi-track recording and how to properly use effects in production.
How to identify and relate to different personality types and the importance of tailoring your approach to get the best results.
Vocal exercises that build and strengthen the voice.
The psychology of emotional connections.
Though I have learned a great deal over the years studying ways to improve my vocal skills, I feel like there is always room for improvement and will continue to look for ways to grow as a voice talent through new challenges and continuing education.
