HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I am new to the voice over business. I have 20 years of radio broadcasting and production experience. Growing up as a kid in Detroit, Michigan, I've always had ambitions of someday becoming a doctor. During my Freshman year, I was a Pre-Med/Biology Major. Well, you know how the old colleg story goes. Those plans immediately changed after being introduced to the world of broadcasting in 1984 during my college years at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona, Beach, Fla.(1983 to 1988).
Although I love Detroit with all of my heart, I've lived in Florida since I was 18 and I think I'll be here for good.
I've done all of my years of professional radio in Florida. I had the honor or working for great companies such as Clear Channel Radio, Paxson Communications, etc. (Joy 108 FM, Magic 107.7 FM Orlando, I-00 99.9FM, etc)
In addition to my broadcasting and production experience, I have over 15 years experience in sales and marketing in other industries. I currently hold a Personal Lines Insurance License for the State of Florida for Home Owners and Auto Insurance.
The Voice Over industry is a field I plan to take part in for the rest of my life. For those who know me, I am known as an intelligent, goal-oriented, hard working, and mentally strong individual. I am honored to be associated with all of you. Thanks in advace for sharing the knowledge, wisdom, and love.
I have a warm, rich and friendly baritone voice. I could also do character voices as well. In addition to my speaking voice, I also have pretty good singing voice as well. I could impersonate famous singers such as Elvis Presley, Jeffery Osborn, Luther Vandross, Fred Hammond, etc.

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
