Today, I’ve found the perfect balance between my two loves: radio and freelance VO work. I get to be “on the radio” every morning at Magic 106.7, and I get to work from home on clients’ VO projects the rest of the time.
When I’m not behind the mic, I focus on my passions, which include chairing the board of the Boston chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). My cousin Paul died by suicide in 1995, so it’s a cause that’s close to my heart. I work with a wonderful group of people who’ve been impacted by depression or suicide. Over the years, we’ve made a lot of progress in the area of mental illness, but we still have a long way to go. It’s important work, and I enjoy it.
I’m also a lucky guy personally: I’ve been married for over 25 years to Kathy, a wonderful woman who is truly my partner in life. Together, we have three fabulous kids: Sean, Fiona, and Maeve.
In my free time, I love to fly. I’m a licensed pilot and have my own Piper Cherokee. One of my daughters goes to Villanova University, outside of Philadelphia. Instead of a seven-plus hour car drive, we can make it in a little over two in my plane—while enjoying spectacular views to boot.
Kathy and I know how extraordinarily fortunate I’ve been to work in the Boston area for my entire radio career. While my home studio allows me to work with clients all over the world, Boston is—and always will be—home.
