Even at the tender age of 10, when my teenage babysitter exposed me to her tiny A.M.transitor radio and pop music, I knew I was destined to be on the radio.
Halfway through the semester of one of my high school drama classes, the teacher asked what we aspired to be someday. Shooting up my hand, I said: “Destined to be on the radio” I’ll never forget when he said with a laugh, “Forget it, Dave, you don’t have what it takes to do that.”
Undeterred, a few short years later I would be the top, Arbitron rated, afternoon-drive air personality on the #1 hit music station in town. That teacher’s discouraging words had only served to encourage me to pursue my dream. I spent the next 20 plus years working at some of the greatest stations across Southern California. I was successful and having the time of my life!
Then, the industry changed. Big media companies started buying up stations left and right, downsizing everything, including me. To support my family, I completely changed careers and went to work for retail giant, Costco. Life was good, except I kept hearing this voice inside me telling me to do something creative with my voice. So I did.
I spent several years training with the best voiceover coaches in the business, Dave Walsh, Anne Ganguzza, David Rosenthal, Julie Williams, and more learning the skills required to be a professional voice “Actor” built a professional quality home studio, had demos produced by the top producers in Los Angeles, and now I’ve built a voice over business helping clients sucessfully deliver their messages to the world.
