Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

As a Second-City-trained improviser, I'm always working to increase my stable of impersonations and accents.
I'm just as passionate about perfecting the subtle, realistic accents as I am the outlandish ones.
I've been told my Russian accent is amazing, my Baltic accent is hilarious, and I'm the first person I know of who does a Louis C.K. impersonation.

My Voice Experience

You're probably wondering what the story is behind a name like "Clinkenbeard." In short, my Proto-Germanic ancestors were known for weaving bells and bits of metal into their long beards and hair... so that when they charged into battle completely nude, it was that much more terrifying.

I'm not making that up.

I proudly follow in my ancestor's footsteps, but in a contemporary way—I always battle to tell unique stories and I always do my best to put my bare emotions into my work.

I live in NY and specialize in a dynamic range of vivid characters. From "informative guy next door" to "over-the-top evil scientist," my skills are well-suited for video games, animation, narration, commercials, and everything in between. My decade and a half of improv experience really set my skills apart. I love creating characters on-the-fly, bringing serious commitment, and finding great places to inject my great sense of humor.

You simply won't find another voice actor who's as versatile, professional, and great to work with as I am.

My ever-expanding client list includes Snapple, Verizon, Dr Pepper, Qlobe, Code & Theory, and many more.

My Training

I've been doing VO for over a decade.
I originally trained at Second City Chicago, I've studied at Edge, and I have a few private coaches I work with from time-to-time to make sure that I'm always challenging myself.

Additional Skills
