I'm often cast for roles in the 20s-40s age range, though I've played both younger and older. I normally read for male roles.
In commercial and narration projects I've done a range; hip, warm, conversational, casual, soft-sell/hard-sell announcer, deadpan, satirical/unnouncer and more.
I've been increasingly doing character work over time as well.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I've played many different characters e.g. timid baby animals, deadly martial artists, snarky teenagers, bloodthirsty werewolves, stinky cowboys, merciless gangsters and city-smashing, sexually ambiguous cyber-clowns.
Accents and dialects are a special area:
I've done them both in character reads and comparatively more challenging regionally/culturally targeted commercial spots, i.e. British, Irish, French, Scottish, Chinese, Bengali Indian, Bostonian, New Yorker, also Southern, Latin and Native American. I'm a strong mimic. Some accents come naturally and with enough familiarity to me that I can readily produce, improv with them at any given time etc. whereas others I'm able to pick up upon preliminary research and practice.
My Voice Experience
I started out toward the end of the dot-com years, working albeit infrequently, on primarily product marketing and secondarily video game reads for Silicon Valley companies. In more recent years I moved to San Francisco where I currently have a permanent home studio and am represented by the Tonry Talent agency. Additionally, I'm represented by Maximum Talent (Denver, CO) and Big Fish Media (London, UK).
I've had clients throughout North America (though mainly in the USA's San Francisco Bay Area), and I've occasionally worked for companies based overseas. Brands I've voiced projects for include Namco, Symantec, Applied Materials, Sony, Whole Foods Market, Nickelodeon, Cisco Systems, Linksys, Lionsgate, Activision, Hitachi, Crayola, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle and The San Francisco 49ers.
I've done mostly but not exclusively non-broadcast projects. While my voice has been used sometimes in radio, television and film, it has more often been used in things like games (e.g. console, arcade), online promotions and presentations, IVR/voicemail, also event and in-store kiosks.
At Voice One I train privately with Elaine Clark, also attend select classes / workshops taught by guest instructors e.g. Bob Bergen and Sam Pond. Most weeks I also participate in workout sessions via VoiceBank.

I've been a musician for many years, primarily a singer who though classically trained has mostly done industrial pop/rock music. I'm a Basso Profundo by chest but with a nearly 3-octave range; being a vocalist has helped me develop my technique and control over my instrument.
When not working as an actor I've been a Marketing guy who has worked both client-side and agencies-side, both as an employee and a consultant. I get on well with experienced Producers, Directors and Clients. I've been lucky to work with many talented creative and technical people, on both sides of the glass, throughout professional life.
