NOT MANY PEOPLE find their life’s calling when they are only 5 years old.

Well, I did.

It was 1969 and I was in kindergarten.

In my hometown of Buffalo, NY, our saintly teacher Sister Donna Marie took our class on a tour of a radio station, WEBR-AM. I was mostly oblivious to the goings on around me at the time but when I walked into that radio station control room…everything changed

Everything.

I don’t know if a light bulb went off for me or if my 5-year-old hand inadvertently touched a transmitter wire in WEBR's studio (pictured), but I knew instantly from that point forward my life would always include a microphone.

And it has.

I WAS GENETICALLY PREDISPOSED to having some kind of media career. My Father was a State Oratory Champion in high school and my Mother had long wanted to work in broadcasting (at a time when women didn’t really do that).

The voiceover bug for me started with radio, when I secured my high school’s first-ever radio station internship. In college, I worked at a 50,000-watt radio station in Dayton, OH where I had the #1 rated show on Saturday nights. Then I was made Commercial Production Manager because clients really liked my voice and production on the commercials and promos I was creating. Because of my humor and personality, I was also a popular client choice for live event announcing.

I’ve been getting return (and many new) voiceover clients ever since. They enjoy working with me via my state of the art voiceover studio in Raleigh, NC., the area where I now make my home with my wife and children.

General Electric, Kraft Foods and Duracell Batteries are just a few of the many internationally known brands I’ve been very fortunate to voice for --- as well as hundreds of great regional and local brands too.
