 Training

In 1987, I graduated from a Radio Announcer Production Program in New York City and had every intention on persuing a career in the industry; however, over the course of the next 10 years I began a family; was hired (as an electrician) by a local commuter railroad, relocated from Brooklyn, NY to North Massapequa, NY; and returned to the ranks of the volunteer fire service. The whole 'radio-thing' was put on the back burner.

In March of 1997 I began an internship at a large-market radio station (WBAB/WGBB) in West Babylon, NY; working in the production department is where I dug in. I took a real liking to production; so much so that a short time later I was hired part time (I was still working a full-time job). I remember the first time I heard my voice on the air it was a tag-line for Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizza. I was surprised with how I sounded (lol...having never heard my voice on the air), but I got used to it. Within my first 6 months I was able to write a commercial, voice and produce it; get client approval and get it on the air. By the time I'd a year at the station I could be entrusted with running the department while the production director was out (at first for an hour, or so; then for the day and later on- for a week). During that time another station came into play (WBLI); and for a time we operated a 3-station cluster (WBAB/WBLI/WGBB). Needless to say, the work for the production department practically doubled.

A short time later I started picking up some side work (the first was a parking lot announcement for Splish Splash, a water park in Riverhead, NY); so in 2001, I started JustMyVoice Production. I had no equipment of my own so I operated out of the station. Later that year, I set up a studio in my basement so that I wouldn't have to rely on the radio station studio; which turned out to be a good thing because in 2003, I left the station.

In August of 2012, I retired from my full-time job and concentrated on doing voiceovers/audio production. I've been compnensated for over 3,000 recordings; amassed hundreds of CD's of royalty free music and sound effects, 6,000+ names on my contact list and a new website with updated demos: I'm a happy dude.
