I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
From lying through my teeth in order to get my first radio job (I told my new G.M. I was founder/proprietor of WCLO-AM...It was true. I just didn't tell him I was twelve at the time,) to studying v/o in Noho with a mind-altered radio star from the '70s, I flap my lips daily in order to pay my daughters' tuition and keep my wife in second-hand Hollywood ball-gowns. I had the good fortune of being cast as "Flint," in the original Sunbow/Hasbro TV Cartoon and have reprised the role in episodes of Robot Chicken, and Family Guy. I'm "Ambassador Donnell Udina" in Mass Effect 1,2, & 3. It's been a great ride down the v/o highway and it continues today (I tell ya, there's no accounting for taste.)

Bill Ratner, you are so dang sweet to even send me a message. I haven't been on VU in like 2 1/2 years so no worries about delayed messages.
Here's some exciting news ... I was chosen to be the event announce at the 2013 Clio Awards which were held in NYC this last Wednesday, May 15. Came out of the clear blue sky ... truly an honor. Just had to share.
You are still #1 in my book. So talented on every level.
You inspire me.
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!
Best to ya!

I used to work as the Webmaster for KFMB TV/AM/FM in San Diego. I did not have the pleasure of meeting or speaking with you while you were doing the Imaging for the TV News side ("News8") but I'm glad I finally get to say "hello". Your breadth of work in is amazing and one of the catalysts for me to become a Voice Actor.
Did you work with Roy Robertson at KFMB? He was the Client Services and Production Manager for the radio side. Roy was kind enough to let me do my very first Voice Over read that made it past an audition tape!
I've moved back to my hometown (a successful graduate of growing up in 'The Valley', thank you!) and devoting non Banker's Hours to a career in Commercial, Animation, and Character/Video Game Voice Over.
