Producer/Director for United Nations Television (News & Media Division) on staff. I've recorded voiceovers/narrations with Maya Angelou, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Robert Redford, Yoko Ono, Stephen Spielberg and many other luminaries over the years. Now I'm featuring myself as a voice talent after coaching so many actors for so long. I've also worked on Reading Rainbow and Sesame Street as a freelancer. Prior to this I produced over 200 commercials for ScreenGems. In the 70's Herb Abramson (co-founder) of Atlantic Records taught me how to engineer records and soundtracks.
I really enjoy creating new voices for commercials and animation. I was also a member of the post production team that produced Pee Wee's Playhouse for CBS.

I own the rights to over 4000 pieces of royalty free music which I can make available to my clients. I also have an excellent sound effects library. My turnaround time can be as short as one hour if needed. I won't be happy until my client is happy with the results we achieve while working together.
