Sebago Lake Media
2008 - present
After working in radio for over 20 years in various capacities from on-air to programming, I started Sebago Lake Media (formerly Otter Creek Media) in June of 2008 to help content providers fine tune their products, grow audiences and generate revenue. I have provided talent coaching, strategic planning, voiceovers, audio production, music scheduling and more here in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to producing daily news voiceovers and other project work, I'm a Partner Success Consultant/TopicPulse content writer for Futuri Media and a Host/Producer for Maine Public Classical.

My role ranged from being the liaison between the installation team and local management teams to helping stations brand and customize this product to suit their unique market needs and sound. I had the pleasure of working with some of the best talents in the business in markets like Detroit and Los Angeles as well as groups in Canada and Europe.

Passions...the University of Life
I firmly believe that one's passions in life are just as important as professional success and I find the two to be closely integrated. My love for running and the process of training for races like 13.1's and 26.2's take much discipline, organization and commitment. These attributes alone have been instrumental to my success as a freelancer. My love for the arts led me to serve on the board of directors with the Compass Music & Arts Foundation in Brandon, VT for two years (2012-2013). Strapping on snowshoes, going for a bike ride or taking a hike on a brisk autumn day are rejuvenating for the mind and body. I have found this leads to increased productivity and creativity in my professional life allowing me to deliver the best possible service to my partners.
