Warm, Fun, Guy Next Door, Character Specialist

Voice Description

My voice is warm, playful, friendly and fun. It can be intimate for sexy commercials, aggressive for sports commercials, or edgy for hip/clever commercials. It is smooth and articulate for narration and presentations. My voice can also create many characters -- humans, animals, aliens and more -- for cartoons, videogames and audiobooks.
