- voice details:


Personally, I have a warm, young-sounding, energetic tenor voice and excellent interpretational skills to deliver the character and spirit of a message.

If you are seeking something beyond the low, carton-a-day, gravel voice heard on every movie trailer and auto commercial, then you're on the right track by veiwing my profile and listening to my "VoiceWorx" demo.

The *power* of my voice is embedded into my ability to interpret material. My method best fits promotional, inviting, and comforting messages. I can be very persuasive in that regard.

It is a reflection of my overall talent as a producer/director. I apply the same sensibilities to the projects where it is my responsibility to direct and supervise the execution and delivery of voice performances. (see the experience section below)

My Voice Experience

I have a tremendous amount of voice production experience - from co-producing/recording mixing multi-episode radio dramas to working on projects featuring the greatest voice talents known; Frank Oz, and the late Jim Henson. (Did you know that Howie Mandel used to be a character voice for the muppet babies?)


My work has been seen and heard on broadcast network television, cable tv, national radio as well as in movie theaters, large arenas, auditoriums, banquet halls, and small classrooms.

I also have experience teaching, promoting, training, and other such forms of live public address.


Over the course of time, I began using my own voice over talent on numerous voiceover jobs: as a voice actor for pre-dubbed theater production, computer voice for a dance song, creating voice mail greetings, voice character for animations, and other forms of voice over work.

In addition to my independent contracting for various clients, I am currently working with one particular company on a steady basis both as a voice actor and as a contractor/director for other voices producing animated voices, commercial VO's, and narrations for documentaries.

With my connections and directing/contracting experience, the right voice for your project is ALWAYS guaranteed.
