TCN Fundraiser

I mentioned in my first fundraising note that there are several ways you can support the TCN. One of those methods is to hire me to provide voiceover work for whatever project you may have. I've done a variety of transportation voice projects. These include providing the voice for several transit agency public address systems (NYC Subway, AirTrain & PATCO), the phone voice for the main numbers of The Port Authority of NY & NJ and PATH, and the narration for a number of videos for companies such as Iteris, Econolite, Sensys Networks and DBi Services. I've even done radio and TV spots for NJ Transit and online course narrations for the University of Maryland. You can hear samples of my work by clicking this link. You'll find my rates reasonable and my turnaround time quick.

Of course, you can also support the TCN with a contribution. You'll see how to do that with the link below. Thank you for your ongoing support!
