"That's cool Dan. It was a valid comment as part of an overall discussion. I'm certainly not immune to criticism and frequently benefit from it. I just wanted to present my side for the record. These things show up in Google…"

HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
At the ripe old age of 15 years old is when my radio career began. I was a HUGE music fan and was actually one of those annoying listeners that we have all come to find in our radio careers (You know you have one of those people that call you ALL THE TIME!) the ones that just get on our nerves…well HI that was me at one time, jokingly I said to the PD of a local station "If you ever need any help, I would love to give it a try", his response was "Actually I do need someone, be here Friday and we'll train you!" We all know that getting into radio is not that easy; I consider it a blessing, kinda like it was a meant to be kinda thing. I was in total disbelief!
Here I' am 15 years later, oh wait…16 YEARS later….just had another birthday! I have worked for some fantastic companies and have met tons of great entertainers! Like Tim McGraw, Poison, Leeann Rimes, Bryan White, Kenney Chesney, Clay Walker, Toto, and so many more. I have hosted morning shows, Mid-Day Shows, and my favorite show to host is the Afternoon show! Just always was a shift I enjoyed. My voice has been featured throughout the USA on various radio station and for various companies, I have also voiced tons of on hold messages, and I' am currently an on-air personality for the award winning KJTZ-Tejano 106.9 FM!
There are two BIG influences in my radio career the first being the good lord above, I truly believe he's the reason I have had pure success in my career, and the other is someone I'm proud to call one of my dearest friends Cody Christopher, he has helped me grow throughout my career and is has taught me so much! Thanks Code-Man!
Are you writing the copy for the funeral home piece? If so, I would focus on the importance of things being taken care of, family togetherness, less stress during an already difficult time, and how nice it is to know that your loved ones and their wishes are in good hands. Not sure if that helps at all, but I can ask my friend! (he used to work in funeral homes)
I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
