Guy Next Door, Storyteller, Earnest, Sarcastic
AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL-
I have been a voiceover actor based in Los Angeles for nearly 20 years.
My commercial clients have included: Hotwire.com, Bacardi, The Home Depot, Dish Network, Ford, Kia, Bausch & Lomb, IHOP, Pedigree, Dairy Queen, Mitsubishi, Baja Fresh, Bell South, The Yellow Pages, Rally’s Hamburgers and dozens of others.
I also was an on hold IVR ‘character’ for Virgin Mobile and narrated ‘The Million Dollar Challenge’ for the History Channel.
I appreciate good service as a consumer, and as a service provider I will go the extra mile to make sure you get what you pay for and more!
I have years of experience working for the highest profile, most demanding clients. Contact me now to see what I can do for you!
VERSATILE ‘GUY NEXT DOOR’ VOICE-
I have a pleasant baritone male voice with a generic Mid-Atlantic American accent. My voice is strong but versatile, and I can ably perform a range of tones and inflections from young adult to a wiser old man.
Whatever product you are producing: a commercial, a documentary, an internet release, a product demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring your script to life.
I even do a few quality impressions. If you need a voice that sounds like Rick Moranis, Eric Cartman, Edna Mode from ‘The Incredibles’, or Lionel Barrymore (Mr. Potter from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’), ask me for a custom demo of your script.
I have been a voice professional for almost twenty years. You have heard me on radio and television throughout the USA, Canada, the voicemail/IVR systems of Fortune 500 corporations, on your child's videogames, and even on a handful of audiobooks- including ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.’
When you want your project done right, done fast, and done with a smile, I'm your guy.
Voiceover is my primary focus. When you choose me as your voice, you can rest assured that you have hired a professional talent, with professional equipment, that has your satisfaction as a customer in mind.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Accents/dialects: I lived in Australia for a year- so I can be the Outback Steakhouse Guy or the Crocodile Hunter. Others include: Standard British, Russian, Irish, Southern, Texan, Minnesotan/Canadian.
Impersonations include: Rick Moranis (ask me to do the Gozer the Traveler Speech from Ghostbusters for you!), Foghorn Leghorn, Eric Cartman from South Park, and this is really random- but I do a mean (literally) impersonation of Mr. Potter from 'It's a Wonderful Life.'
My Voice Experience
I have been in numerous television and radio commercials. I was the voice of Hotwire.com for over 5 years. In addition, I have been in many video games including: 'BioShock Infinite', 'Grand Theft Auto V', Eugene in 'Whacked!' and Senel Coolidge in 'Tales of Legendia.' I was also in the Warner Bros. feature animation film 'The Ant Bully.' I narrated a show for the History Channel called 'The Million Dollar Challenge'. I also narrated the audiobook 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'- which can be found in the iTunes Store.
I am very versatile and adapt well to the different genres of voice over.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Drama (with an Acting Emphasis) from San Diego State University.
I took Working Pro from Cathy Kalmenson at Kalmenson & Kalmenson in Los Angeles. I have also been a voice over instructor for Kalmenson & Kalmenson since 2002.
I received Improvisational training at the Groundlings and IO West in Los Angeles.
I have taken many voice classes that focused on: commercials, animation, promo, and narration.
My Studio Equipment
I have my own home studio complete with a sound booth. Additionally, I have ISDN and phone patch capabilities.
My equipment includes: a Sennheiser 416 mic, an Avalon M5 pre-amp and I'm running Pro Tools on my iMac.
Teaching voice over classes for over the past 10 years has really honed my skills as a performer. I know how to interpret copy, and am very comfortable directing myself and others.
