ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
I am from Birmingham, Alabama an area in the city called Fairfield. I come from a life with an early love for music and radio. I had a chance to experience music by singing in a garage band, attending our neighborhood singing group (The Soul Controllers aka The Controllers) rehearsals occasionally, and singing in the church and school choirs. When I graduated high school, the Navy slogan was “Join the Navy, see the world”. So, two weeks after graduation, I was out in the world on my own.
My first Navy duty station was Pax River NAS, in Lexington Park, Maryland, south of Washington DC. While there, I started listening to Howard University Radio Station, WHUR, and radio personality Melvin Lindsey and the fire for radio I had as a kid, rekindled in me. On my first attempt at being a radio broadcaster, I tried enrolling in Columbia School of Broadcasting. I went through the indoctrination process, prepared the application demo by voicing (Reading the News, Sports, Weather, and a product commercial), only to learn that I couldn’t afford to continue.
My life’s journey allowed me to serve my country (Navy). I’ve worked in the Nuclear Power industry and serve the government currently as a civil servant. In those areas, I’ve had the opportunity to develop and present training using various instructional approaches including, instructor-led and computer-based. As I transition into the next phase of my life, I decided to launch my voice acting career and my voice-over services company by getting trained professionally. My experiences have encouraged me to make a living with my voice and remember my love of radio; my slogan is “We Speak For You,” aka WSFY. I Have a home-based professional recording studio in Leonardtown, Maryland; this enables me to turn around projects quickly within 24-48 hours, depending on project size.
