Born and raised in Toronto, Walter became interested in broadcasting when he received a transistor radio for Christmas at the age of 10. During recess, Walter would go to his perfect spot, sit and listen to the various on-air hosts, up and down the dial, fascinated by the voices and music.

Walter has worked at several radio stations around Toronto, co-produced documentaries for television, was a casting agent for film and television, has been a DJ at some of the city's top hotspots, and has done promotions and publicity for numerous award winning Canadian musicians. All the while Walter has also been very busy as a voice actor, and realtor, helping people buy and sell homes.

Walter brings you Saturday Afternoon Jazz from noon to 4PM.
