I have a relatively deep speaking voice, and my years of experience in various broadcast areas has allowed me to become proficient in speaking clearly and distinctly. I have the ability to provide straightforward voice work that would be appropriate for a broadcast news type application. I can also easily vary my expression as needed for a higher energy delivery such as would be required for commercial advertising purposes.

Experience

I can provide an extensive resume if needed. I was Public Information Officer for the New Orleans Fire Department for 15 years. As the primary spokesman, my daily duties included television and radio interviews as well as numerous public speaking engagements. Concurrently I completed extensive course work at the University of New Orleans in the Communications curriculum.

After retiring from the fire department, I worked for five years as Copy and Production manager for KCWD/KNWA radio stations in Harrison, Arkansas. My primary duties was writing advertising copy, but I was also responsible for overseeing production of on-air radio commercials. I was the voice talent on a significant number of ad productions.

I am also a singer/songwriter, and have extensive performance experience in that respect. I have a home recording studio, including excellent microphones and mixing board. For recording project I use Adobe Audition, and am capable of providing excellent quality.
