My Voice Experience

David brings to every voice-over project an effusive heartfelt voice and an array of voice-over styles. His highly versatile voice runs the gamut from energetic, cool, hip, fun and edgy to conversational, warm, genuine, natural, confident and caring, as well as, an arsenal of animated character voices!

David has also worked on the “other side of the microphone” directing, and continuously learning from, some of the top names in the voice-over world including, the late Don LaFontaine, Joe Cipriano, Tress MacNeille, Tony Rodgers, Jonathan Cook, Ben Patrick Johnson, Scott Rummell, Ashton Smith, Rob Paulsen and Gary Owens just to name drop a few.

David honed his acting craft with such profound teachers as Squire Fridell (the preeminent commercial actor and gentleman farmer), pioneering director and actress Joan Darling, and the illustrious and insightful Ray Reinhardt.

David’s television and film experience includes HBO’s “Vietnam War Stories”,
AFI’s “The Wall”, “The Young & The Restless”, “General Hospital” and the cult classic “The White Shadow”. His stage credits include “Terra Nova”, “As You Like It”, “Comedy of Errors”, “Harvey”, “The Serpent” , “Our Town”, “The Robber Bridegroom” and a play with one of the longest names ever, “The Miss Hamford Beauty Pageant and Battle of the Bands” which won the prized “Scotsman Award” at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland! Yes, that is where he learned to love the bagpipes and fine single malt scotch.

His image has also graced print advertisements for Kraft Foods, Seafirst Bank, and Go Incognito Sunglasses.

While performing voice-overs fills David with sheer and utter delight, he can also be found playing tennis any chance he gets. As a being of creative energy, David also has an enthusiastic passion for art and paints in a variety of mediums. David’s most recent and significant accomplishment and as he puts it, “the best gift I ever gave myself”, was completing his graduate studies in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica, which he feels brings an unparalleled level of depth, not only to his voice-over performances, but his life.
