Storyteller -- with grit and gravitas
Wayne Hughes -- the original "Guy Next Door" -- has recorded hundreds of voiceover reads to help make his clients projects the best they can be.
Wayne has a voice style described as conversational, friendly, genuine, authentic, believable, guy next door, high energy, soft sell, hard sell, sincere, hip, cool, corporate, business like, relatable, sophisticated, knowledgeable, promo, urgent, girt, gravitas and educational.
His voice tends to be in the same range and style as Tim Allen, John Krasinski, John Corbett, Sam Elliott and Jeff Bridges, as well as others. The typical age range for my voice is (30- 60).

Do you need that strong, confident, authoritative voice to help deliver your message? I've got you covered. How about a unique, informative voice for an animated series? Been there done that too.
I am also a trained on camera actor, which gives me the ability to provide you with a true "Voice Acting" experience.
I can deliver a wide-variety of voiceovers such as corporate, radio, and TV spots, but my favorite is narrating documentaries. As an internationally published photographer, I have been to many of these places, which allows me to give your project that little something extra as I take your listener to far off lands. National Geographic, BBC and PBS, I look forward to working with you soon...
Make sure and save me to your Favorites, so that we can quickly find each other in the future!

Nature documentary film on Yellowstone for Wildstate Films
The Spoken Tale (Animated Comedy Series)
Recently, I was hired by Wildstate Films to work on a short nature film about Springtime in Yellowstone. This project was done in a friendly, upbeat tone as it explored the thawing landscape of Yellowstone in early May. I was also asked to help adjust the script to better fit the film.
On a completely different note, I was asked to play a "Grumpy Old, Gray-haired man in a shopping cart" in a comedic cartoon. I was sent one picture of the character and was asked to "make it as funny as possible". I even had to sing.
