Distinctive, sexy, authoritative, confident, rich, warm, believable, professional, sincere, cool, sophisticated, smooth, charming, friendly, dramatic, ominous, playful, persuasive, and unique.

His voice is capable of being clear and concise with excellent diction and enunciation. And he can do it in any way you'd like whether that's warm, friendly and smooth, or edgy and deep, with just the right amount of rasp so you don't just hear his voice, you feel it.

I'm equally comfortable editing audio files as I am in front of the mic. I've voiced and produced fully finished audio in over a hundred spots for one of my best clients, ranging from announcer to tons of different characterizations. Being a musician has also given me countless hours recording experience, as well as mixing and mastering tons of projects. I've also produced many different audio/visual projects for a major retail outlet. I've been responsible for creating and developing commercials and writing the scripts for these as well as voicing every one of the characters, editing and producing the fully finished projects.

I'm super easy to work with and I love what I do. I've been a singer since high school and a performer my whole life. I've got two boys that keep me young and a beautiful wife who knows I'm nuts but still loves me. I do 99% of all my voiceover work from my personal studio in beautiful San Antonio, Texas.
