I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
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. "Iron" Mike

btw. You sound great!
I'm so glad that you like my motivational CD! It's doing very well around the world. We have to continue to spread the word. I'm in the process now of making radio and television spots for the CD. Keep a look out for the commercials. Have a great week Mike.
Thanks for the encouragement and the recommendations! I'll be sure to pass that along to my Mom.
We'll have to keep in touch from time to time. I'd love to know how your journey into the VO industry is turning out.
Yes, this site is great. I am not even in the voiceover industry, but Rick was gracious enough to invite me to join after we crossed paths on a website that I run.
I am interested in issues surrounding voice and understand how people use their voices. This interest is because of Mom has a vocal disorder and, thus, has very limited ability to speak.
Anyway, it is really great to see a fellow Central Floridian on the site!
Take care and best wishes in the industry!
I like that call center movie rated-R...LOL funny stuff.
