I've worked with my voice all my life. I'm a singer, and have years of voice-over expertise, on-camera presentation, live-reporting, public-speaking, hosting, Emcee-ing, producing, writing, and editing. I'm a blogger of all things voice-over. Come see me at: http://www.courvo.biz I grew up on a crop farm in the middle of South Central Illinois. Pigs, cows, chickens, horses...wheat, beans, corn...I know the value of hard work and persistence. University of Illinois, BS, MS 1977...that's my alma mater, and where my oldest daughter now attends as a Dance Major. Graduate: School of hard knocks in Radio, TV News...all over the country. My first job was at KCCC, The Golden Country sound of Carlsbad, NM. Interests: Racquetball, God, Computers, reading, 3 daughters, all things internet.

In my world everyone is a winner... so if I can be of any assistance and answer a breif question or two, please feel free to contact me.
p.s. btw you were an awesome MC for VO2008
Thanks for the note! Hope you and your girls are all doing well (as I recall, you mentioned in Vegas that you had lots of daughters but no sons...is my memory right?) I saw you briefly from a distance on Thurs in LA (Aug 7., the day of Jim's birthday) but I was whisked away by Aussies and didn't get a chance to pop around to say HI in person. You looked great, as usual! Enjoy yr weekend.
You never know how you'll touch people's lives when you're in a position like that. Thanks for the story... and best of luck... let me know how I can help!
Just visited your website, and was completely blown away! It's a complete voice-over mecca for information on all things VO. I'm in Vegas like Joey, but only for the past two months. Would love to meet for lunch!
Wonderful to meet you and work with you at VOICE 2008, from the first afternoon stuffin' bags through all your calm, cool, professional introductions -- you shine! Hopefully my Voice Group from Jim & Penny's 2007 Intensive are coming to Vegas in February to hang out together - you must join us!
Thanks for all you contribute, I'm a fan now!
