IT WAS 1969 and I was in kindergarten.
Our saintly teacher, Sister Donna Marie, took our class on a trip to WEBR-AM in Buffalo, NY.
The minute I walked into that radio station control room...BOOM! Everything changed for me.
I knew instantly my life would always include a microphone.
From securing my high school's first-ever broadcasting internship to hosting Dayton, Ohio’s #1 rated Saturday night request show on a 50,000-watt FM station while only in college, I’ve been behind a microphone almost ever since.
My audio production and voiceover work evolved into my voiceover production company, audio'connell Voiceover Talent.
There I voice commercials, narrations and broadcast promos for clients like Amazon (AWS), Crest Toothpaste, iHeart Radio and Duracell Batteries.
In 2016, we O'Connells packed up our Conestoga wagon and ventured from our longtime home in Buffalo, NY to Raleigh, NC (near Research Triangle Park), where my Source-Connect equipped, professional recording studio today serves media producers world-wide.
Unique traits: I'm nice to people.
