Upbeat smile in voice Midwest/Southern mix
My voice is unique for an African American male. I'm a Midwestern nasal with a slight southern mix. Strange, right? But it's warm and friendly with lots of smile for commercial projects. I also have enough low end for narrations or sultry, sexy projects...Can be excitable (as a former sports caster) for hard sell presentations. Plenty of on camera talent experience for spokesperson projects.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Though I have rarely used them in a professional manner, I can do a southern accent pretty well..I was once a guest on a radio program in Atlanta and did Mike Tyson so well they had me record a promo!!! LOL The host (Dan Patrick), caught some heat for that, but we had a lot of fun. I am famous around the house for doing my old uncle impression...you know, that black southern guy who kind of laughs and speaks at the same time! He's the one that enters the room and yells, "hey dehya"...Also a hit with kids when I substitute teach for my Darth Vader and Yoda impressions.
My Voice Experience
I don't have a whole lot of clients or experience using my voice in this manner. However, after a 25 year broadcasting career, I am more than capable of doing it. Last summer, I wrote and voiced the new employee video presentation for the Metropolitan District Commission of Hartford. That was my professional, "I'm not necessarily a black guy", voice!
Currently, I am a reporter for the CPTV program, ALL THINGS CONNECTICUT. I write and voice long forum pieces on high-tech, low-tech and no-tech hobbies with a similar voice as described above.
Years ago, I was the voice of a very hard sell ad for race track in the Panama City, Fl area, and it was still running every now and then as little as 3 years ago. You want sexy, I can do it. Warm smile..that's me any way! Excited? Yes! Give me a call!
1981: Graduated with BA in Broadcast Communications/Journalism from Columbia College Chicago, one of the nations' most respected schools in this area.
October 2008: Lead male role in Musical Theater production of "Blues in the Night" for New Britain, CT repertory theater. (Six shows)
July 2009-Present: Vocalist, SOUL SOUND REVUE cover band. Motown and other dance r&b music from the 60's, 70's and 80's..
1978-84: Sports phone, Chicago. Rapidly fired off scores from college and pro sports on a 60-second recorded message updated every 10-15 minutes. Many callers were surprised to learn I am black.
I have used my voice in a number of ways. How about for you?
My Studio Equipment
I now have access to quality voice over recording in my home. (portable studio). If you like what you hear, give me a shot. You will not be disappointed.
I am over 50, but have a deep desire to continue learning and growing. No Prima Donna egos here! Just excited about doing the job the way you want it done! I am a polished professional broadcaster, who is willing to do something different if the client wants it that way. Voice over work is something I always thought about getting into, but at the time, we didn't have services like Voice 123...or if we did, I was unaware! Now I have a studio at home and I am rearing to go!
