I have three decades of experience as an announcer. I started as a broadcast journalist, reporting and anchoring radio news. I also have many years of experience as a concert host/emcee/announcer and as the announcer for a major university marching band before live audiences in concert halls, outdoor concert venues, football stadiums and pep rallies. In addition, I have done "Voice of God" announcing for large conferences and formal events, I have served as arena announcer for sports events, and I have narrated in-house documentaries.
As a marching band announcer I have performed on national TV, at bowl games, and for audiences exceeding 100,000 fans. As a summer music festival announcer I emcee concerts before live audiences. Coupled with my experience in music (piano, clarinet, oboe and bass clarinet), I have an outstanding sense of timing and an ability to read and respond to audiences. My "Voice of God" announcing is top-notch, especially for formal occasions.
I am an excellent writer and editor and can help improve all forms of copy. My many years of experience in public relations, media relations and government affairs have given me a wide understanding of topics, issues, public policy and advocacy, particularly in the fields of health care and insurance.
I bring a sense of professionalism, maturity and commitment to excellence in all that I do.
I have a Bachelors Degree in communications, majoring in Radio-TV-Film. After five years in broadcast journalism, I have spent much of my career in public relations, media relations and government affairs but continue announcing as an avocation. As a musician I have played piano, clarinet, oboe and bass clarinet.
