high, Pesci, nerd, NY, nervous, regular guy

Voice Description

I read for a lot of character and animation voices. Insects, mobsters, inanimate objects, you name it. My voice is higher pitched with a smoky quality. I see a lot of "Joe Pesci type, or "Steve Buscemi" type on copy. But I don't have a NY/Jersey accent normally. I can do sarcastic, wry, guy next door, or above-it-all type reads. I can sound mature like a dad or young and exciting like a kid depending on the spot. I can do serious promos for TV shows that appeal to a younger crowd as well as you will hear on my promo demo. I also sing and arrange harmonies. I can sound like a radio DJ or game show host. High energy fun reads? You betcha!
