A Little about Me…
From the tender age of seven, my little brother and I would indulge ourselves in old radio theater albums, where the “theater of the mind” held sway, and the power of voice acting made a deep impression. The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Fibber McGee and Molly, and many other old radio shows competed for our attention with the classic TV cartoon voices of Paul Frees, Stan Freberg, Paul Winchell, Daws Butler, Gary Owens, and of course, Mel Blanc. In the following years, I took pleasure in reading MAD Magazine movie satires out loud into my 3” reel-to-reel tape recorder, using different voices for each character.
After four years of high school Drama and two years of community theater doing Brecht, Coward, Inge, Wilde, and Shakespeare, I joined the US Air Force, where I entered Slavic Language Studies in order to work for the National Security Agency, both stateside and in Southern Italy. While in Italy, I had my own radio show on the base station. Later, I was asked to become a member of the looping group Visual Voices with Disney voiceover legend Ginny Tyler, with whom I worked as a VO and ADR artist on over 10 films. More recently, as a 4th-grade teacher, I have had many opportunities to use my skills as a storyteller to engage a most highly demanding audience: a room of 30 nine-year-old kids (as opposed to 39-year-old kids).
Today, I strive to provide my VO clientele with a colorful range of vocal offerings, professionally recorded in my home studio. All this, along with a fast turnaround time, serve to help the client solve their problems, assist them in realizing their creative vision, and ease their worried mind.
