Summary

After acheiving my childhood dream of becoming a police detective, I decided to retire after 8 years on the force to become a stay at home father for our 2 girls. I did this for 6 years until opening my own boutique  wine store, a WineStyles franchise, for 2 years in Green Bay Wisconsin.  During this time I performed numerous wine tasting classes and events, and appeared on radio and T.V. several times.  I was also the Area Developer for the state of Wisconsin for one year, and helped 2 other stores open during that time.  My wife's career took us to Connecticut, so I closed the store, and tried a few other jobs, mostly involving sales.  Having been told for most of my adult life that I have a "Great voice for radio," I decided to pursue a career in the Voice Over Industry.  I undertook training at Edge Studios, based out of New York, and have produced a Demo CD, which you can find to the right of the screen.
