Versatile, off beat, warm, guy next door
My natural speaking voice is warm and friendly, my delivery is intelligent and grounded. Great for narration and professional presentations. I can handle text quickly, including Shakespeare. Quirky and playful, invent characters on the fly. Trustworthy, honest, sincere. If you are looking for tough and hard-hitting, I can also give you the punch you need.
