Introduction: Great attitude. Excellent service. Wide variety of experience. Common sense! I get to read some of the most interesting scripts. I learn so much about new products in the early stages of development and some of them are wild! I also get to do sensitive material from various corporations including the government and have to sign confidentiality agreements. It is very interesting and every day is different! I also enjoy hearing myself on television during a popular sporting event or on the radio and I especially like being a part of cool apps, websites and video games. I have been a pirate, soldier, boss, nerd, old geezer, Rocky Balboa, Cheech, mobster, Latin lover, Asian, Italian, Jewish, Redneck, etc. It can be a lot of fun.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Trade magazines, books and on-line forums for advertisers, agents, producers and voice talents. I attend advertising seminars and read everything I can about the current state of advertising. The best book on advertising I've read recently: How To Market To People Not Like You.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I used to love listening to the AM radio as a boy in Miami, Florida in the sixties. Back then it was guys like: Jim Dunlap, Rick Shaw and Roby Young on WQAM and WFUN. That seemed like the coolest job on earth! When I went to college in Oklahoma I paid a little visit to the local radio station there called, KGFF. They eventually trained me and I became a night time DJ while attending college earning 2.10 per hour in 1975. Within a year I had written and produced the Commercial Of The Year at the Oklahoma Broadcaster's convention and I was honored as a Regional Winner in Billboard Magazine's Air Personality competition. I was off and running then. I've worked in Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, California, Illinois and Arkansas and it has been such a good adventure. I started doing voice-overs in addition to my "on-air" work in the mid eighties.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Radio commercials, TV commercials, training videos (DVDs), safety videos, website presentations, movie trailers, theatre commercials, trade show presentations, in-store announcements, new product demonstration videos, phone apps, video games, phone message on-hold recordings and IVR.
