Guy next door, characters, foriegn accents
My voice has a wide and varied range. I can speak perfect English with no regional dialects, or can add any specific accents (southern, New York, midwest, etc) as needed. I can offer smooth and soft for presentations, lots of energy for commercials, warm and deep for narrations, and can do voices of kids to seniors as well as cartoon characters.

My Voice Experience
I used to announce the football and basketball games in high school, and have excellent tone and pitch for announcing - have booked many jobs as Emcee and host of various events.
In the last few years I changed careers and became an actor on tv (demo reel at www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwm_g0-0lnQ , including segment with me doing a Finnish accent). I have learned to monitor and control my voice well as a result of the acting training, and have been auditioned for commercials including the new Volkswagon campaign.
Recently I was used to record the voice answering system for a local vocational school in Los Angeles (call 310-224-4200 and you get me on the phone system). I do voiceover for many of the student films at the New York Film Academy, and my acting coach Richard Hatch (from Battlestar Galactica) has referred voiceover jobs to me as well.
