Voice Description

I'm a fun, upbeat guy with the ability to be dramatic too. I love kids (have two boys) so I have a real passion for children's programming. I have character voices, and can pull off a few accents too. I will deliver a professional read for business/web/phone needs and think I excel at connecting with the average person. Plus, and most importantly, I am easy to work with.

My Voice Experience

A communicator for the last 13 years. I talk on the radio everyday, and it's my job to connect, sell, and be a steady voice for my audience. I work with Ideal Image and have produced incredible results for them with my endorsement. I approach it with the regular guy attitude and have a lot of fun with it too.

I also host a show heard by 1,000,000 kids everyday on school buses, so I know how to talk to kids. I get to use characters, be very animated and have a lot of fun.

The following are clients that have received GREAT RESULTS with me on their ads.
Ideal Image o WLWK, Accunet Mortgage on WKTI and KC Loft Space on KMXV.
