Friendly, authoritative, warm, slightly hunky
Regardless of the subject matter, I sound like a friendly knowledgeable expert, with a touch of authority. This is especially useful in my narration work, but also applies to spots. When I'm not playing the expert, I'm usually hired either for dynamic, retail-oriented high energy reads or warm, slightly folksy reads.

My Voice Experience
17 years of voicing spots for companies like Ford, Nike, Budweiser, Yoplait, Pioneer, Proctor & Gamble, Cadillac, Subway, Hoover, Delta Airlines, Tractor Supply Co, Stelara and Dunkin' Donuts. Also, I've done hundreds of narration projects for corporate clients, including Boeing, National Geographic, State Farm, Walgreens, and many many more.
In the early days of my career I studied in Chicago with Ray Van Steen, then later studied with Marice Tobias, who is based in Los Angeles. I also did a lot of learning on the job by working with dozens of agency producers and copywriters over the years. When I'm not voicing projects, I'm appearing in them, and have been a full time actor since 1995. I now teach others how to establish and develop careers in the Midwest market. I've written a book on the subject, which has become a go-to resource for actors of all experience levels.
My Studio Equipment
Avalon VT-737 Preamp
Focusrite 2i2 audio interface
Recorded into a Mac
In addition to being a voice talent, I'm also an on camera actor who has worked in episodic TV on shows such as "Chicago PD", "Sirens", "Betrayal", "Boss", "The Beast", and "Mob Doctor." I've also done extensive on-camera commercial work, pitching products like cars, insurance, hospitals, burgers and beer. I'm an on-camera narration expert, and frequently book corporate projects that require an approachable yet knowledgeable spokesperson. My client list includes brands like Panasonic, Toyota, AT&T and True Value Hardware. Finally, I'm proficient at medical/scientific terminology because of the years I spent studying for my undergrad biology degree.
