I’ve been on Broadway — in the role of a ginormous Times Square billboard.

I did my first voice-over for an online CRM program. Thirsty work, literally. And later, got my heart broken over
a celebrity-endorsed television spot we pitched to the same client.
The ECD praised it for being “too
The spot, not the VO.
An hour before a pitch at a client’s global HQ for their big US product launch, we learned that the creative director who was supposed to present our concepts, wasn’t coming. No idea why. No time to panic. Or cry.

We knew the work, we loved the work. And we rocked it.
For a holiday radio spot I cast the guy who played Norman Wilson in The Wire.
Amazing voice, amazing in person. He graciously sat through endless script rewrites from the client while we were in the recording studio. Total pro.
Four hours later the client was finally happy with what had become (no kidding) a 90-second spot.
90 seconds. On the radio. An. Eternity.
If you were one of the 18 people who listened to it all the way through, bless your holiday shopping heart. At Newark. The airport (no kidding). Hopefully you found some great deals.
