I can do a few dialects,my voice is very smooth and clear,warm and deep for narrations,sexy and fun for adult themes,professional for presentations,a wide range from low to high tones,can be very soft to very rough for many types of feelings,and I can do some character voices from
John Wayne,Gary Cooper,Burt Lancaster, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to cartoon types like Goofy,Pee Wee,or the like. I am a professional actor and can use expression,and emotion in my voice,and I know how to sell a product and ACT with my voice.

I take direction very well,and read from script while voice recording, or record voice from a script to refine it in post, and can make it exciting,dramatic,or any style you need. I am a western performer, and can sound very southern, or like the person next door.I can range from young to very old. I have made many local voice overs and some TV spots for commercials, as well as promos for my own shows, movies, video shorts and trailers.
