CUSTOMER SERVICE-

There's a reason that I am one of the leading talents in the industry. My roster of satisfied clients speaks for itself, but I pledge to you that when hired to voice your project, I will not rest until you have a voiceover that you are thrilled with. Customer satisfaction is my number one priority at all times. I appreciate good service as a consumer, and as a service provider I will go the extra mile to make sure you get what you pay for and more!

POWERFUL, VERSATILE VOICE-

I have a classic, powerful, deep male voice with a generic Mid-Atlantic American accent. My voice is strong but versatile, and I can ably perform a range of tones and inflections from chipper young adult to wise old man.

Whether you are producing a commercial, a documentary, an internet release, a product demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring your script to life.

I even do a few quality impressions. If you need a voice that sounds like Sam Elliot, Morgan Freeman, Mike Rowe, Dennis Leary, or Bill Clinton, ask me for a custom demo of your script.

I have been a voice professional for almost twenty years. You have heard me on radio and television throughout the USA, Canada, the U.K., and Europe, at movie theaters, the voicemail/IVR systems of Fortune 500 corporations, on your child's videogames, and even on a handful of audiobooks.

When you want your project done right, done fast, and done with a smile, I'm your guy. In addition to the substantial roster of satisfied clients who have kindly left me positive feedback, I have a portfolio of work and references that few in the industry can match.

Voiceover is my life, and my livelihood. When you choose me as your voice, you can rest assured that you have hired a professional talent, with professional equipment, and a total customer service experience.
