HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Upon graduation from High School, I joined the U.S. Navy. I received extensive training in Coronado California before shipping out for my first of two tours in SE Asia. After being honorably discharged, I accrued in excess of 2500 classroom hours in Law Enforcement / Criminal Justice (over the course of 27 years), studying at both the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Wyoming. I received comprehensive training in public relations, which led to work at various radio and television stations as the "Public Relations" Officer. Discovering a 'knack' for copywriting, I was soon tasked with creating the material for various public awareness and safety campaigns, and was also blessed with writing a weekly Op/Ed column for several newspapers. I have been advised by and study Bettye Zoller Seitz (She ROCKS) and have studied under Pat Fraley. My daily education incorporates the "Sponge" technique. I follow, with unshakable tenacity, those greats who offer to rub elbows with rabble such as I on this and other websites (including their own), and 'absorb' every nugget they throw my way. I read what they have to say .... and listen to how they say it. I've worked part time over the years at several small radio stations, voicing commercials and promos. I decided just recently to pursue voice over work full time. I am also a freelance writer, having achieved publication in both periodicals and a short story anthology.
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
I recently completed two audio books. The first, "Redeemed Israel, Reunited and Restored," for Key of David Publishing and the second, "Victory" for JimCin Recording. The latter is now available on Audible.com. I'm in negotiation for a second book with Key of David titled, "Return to the Land," by Ephraim Frank. I am also recording and producing a collection of classic short stories that I hope to release this Fall.
