I worked in large market radio (Charlotte, NC) for 5 years in the late 1990's. I started as the News Director - writing, producing, and broadcasting daily newscasts. I quickly moved into commercial production, followed by programming, and eventually became a well known on-air personality.
I have been a musician in the U.S. Navy since 2005. Though I have recorded various projects over the last 13 years, it's been on a very limited basis (mostly for clients I had worked for in the past). I am currently the voice of Joe Parillo's "Jazz After Dinner" program on WCRI in Rhode Island. I'm hoping to re-establish myself in the industry as I approach the end of my Naval career.
Additionally, I have been a professional singer & trumpet player for over 30 years, imitating the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Diane Schuur and many others. Prior to working in radio production, I spent several years touring the southeastern United States as front person and vocalist for a popular jazz trio. I have one of the best alto voices in the biz - which I'm hoping will give me an opportunity to sing a few jingles and voice a few eBooks (2 things on my professional bucket list).
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
