high energy, mellow, serious
My voice is generally in the mid-baritone range. Slightly deeper than 'average' but still with the ability to add lots of inflection to show enthusiasm and emotion. I am a former TV news announcer so serious reads are no problem. However I have also been a stage actor so wide emotional range is easy too. I have the perfect voice for on-hold messages and voice mail greetings. Smooth, understandable with no distinct accent.
On the flip side - I have also done some play-by-play announcing for the Toronto Blue Jays farm team when they were located in Ontario, as well as local Junior hockey. This gives me experience with the fast tempo, hard sell style. Regardless of your announcing need, I'll be happy to provide you with a job-specific demo so you can see for yourself that I am the right voice talent for your job.

My Voice Experience
I have 10 years experience as an on-air announcer in both television and radio. I also have acting experience on stage and on video. I can range from serious news read style to casual conversational to high-energy "K-Tel" style commercial read. I have earned the nickname 'one-take wonder' for my ability to get jobs done quickly and with no mistakes or retakes necessary.
I trained with one of the best radio voices in southern Ontario - Stu Black. He was my radio instructor when I was studying Radio and TV in college. He is a 30+ year veteran of radio in Southern Ontario and taught me quite a bit about inflection, tone and clearness. The best training was on the job. A total of 10 years broadcasting experience has taught me much about how to use the 'tool' of my trade - my voice.
My Studio Equipment
Shure PG42-USB microphone with pop filter
One final skill I'd like to add is my ability to speak in front of large groups. I have MC'd many functions at my church and was a former tourguide at my employer taking over 1200 people in total through our new facility.
