TCN Fund Drive

On Monday I told you one of the ways to support the TCN was through advertising.  Yet another way is by using my voiceover services.  There are plenty of people who do voice work, but not too many who specialize in transportation.   I've had a number of voiceover clients, including some of the biggest names in the transportation business; the NYC subways, the Port Authority of NY & NJ, Siemens, Virginia DOT, Bombardier and IBTTA.  Each day over a million people hear my voice in various venues.

While I continue to welcome contributions to the TCN (see details below) I want you to know you can also get something extra in return for your support.  Please check out my website to learn more and to hear samples of my work.   Thank you!
