Inviting personality, oddball, Character voicer

Voice Description

Smooth, deep, and inviting for sexy soft sells. Comforting and light for a caring edge. Airy and resonating for mysterious narrative. High, spirited and wacky for a comedic performance, sort of like Jim Carrey. Deep, rich and voluminous for a dark delivery such as in movie trailers. Various levels of courseness and raspiness to show edgy characters with a hard or weathered past, or for an older man. Confident and strong for a professional sound.


Impersonations: Gregory Peck, Christopher Lloyd, Sylvester Stallone, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Ed Wyn, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Jeremy Irons, Phil Silvers.

My Voice Experience

My path to voice over work has come through my experience as an actor, discouvering new ways to utilize my talents.

I have: years of work as an actor in stage plays, commercials, television and film.

Most recently I have voiced a realistic sounding train engineer that will be used for model trains bought by hobbyists. I was a sleepy customer in a commercial for The Brick Warehouse and performed narration for a 15 minute educational online video, "The Hidden Water". I've also voiced characters for an animation series produced by Panacea Entertainment: Anash and the Legacy of the Sun rock; Daxa (old Indian Shaman), Zebe (young Indian slavetrader), a Russian Sailor and a soldier.

I've also worked for an animation company (Chinook Animation - 2004/05)that deals mostly in Japanese Anime, doing the voices for various bad guys, young and older.

I won the lead role of Char Aznable in Zeta Gundam, a very large Anime franchise, as well known amongst anime fans as much as Star Trek. This job lasted a good year and a half, working on mic, performing the more difficult task of cartoon voice over work, ADR.

Currently I am performing "The Dark Lord and Zakenna"(a conjured monster of the Dark Lord) for Pretty Cure and "Barda" a sword wielding soldier and protector of a young King on a quest in "Deltora Quest". Both of these are still with Chinook Animation.

Also I've done some creature voices for a video game by Bioware; (goblins, a dragon as Jeremy Irons, an Arab father) Baldur's Gate 2; Throne of Bhaal. My last project with Bioware was performing voices on Mass Effect 3.

Through this work I met a young woman,Deb Munro, who taught courses in voice over. I've gotten one job through her so far for a "Learning English" project for Oriental students.

Through my own Acting agent I have obtained work as a narrator for a Safety video designed for the Edmonton area in which I live.

My vast experience as an actor has been in both drama and comedy, so I have the abilites to bring you a serious professional performance, or all the way across the spectrum to an energetic comedic experience.
