Transportation Voice Recordings
If you're a reader of the TCN you're probably interested in good communications. Part of that is making sure your message is clear and persuasive. I can help you with that. I'm one of the few people who specialize in transportation voice recordings. There are unique challenges in communicating in transportation environments such as acoustics and background noise, and I can help you deal with those challenges. My voice is heard by thousands daily in one of the toughest locations in the world, the New York City subway. I'm also the voice who welcomes travelers to Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports onboard the AirTrain.
Transit isn't the only place my work can be heard. For example, I've narrated videos for Econolite, and the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority; TV and radio commercials for NJ Transit; phone recordings for TransCore and PATH; and a PowerPoint presentation for the I-95 Corridor Coalition. I've even done line announcing, such as for the cornerstone laying ceremony for the new 1 World Trade Center tower.
