conversational, dry humor, authority, inspiring
My voice is in the baritone range, warm and friendly but authoritative and confident. I can go from old-fashioned broadcast tones to average Joe casual speech. I am a former trial attorney and have experience in speaking strongly and persuasively in a professional manner on a variety of subjects.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Accents: British BBC and some regional including North London, Cockney, Yorkshire; Australian, Scots, Irish, French, Russian, German; American accents: Southern, Appalachian, Midwest, and Yankee. I can do straight or comic versions of all the above.
Characters include pompous pedantic types, menacing bullies, overbearing bosses or inspiring authority figures. I can also offer a soothing and reassuring mentor's voice, or be the guy that can explain anything, making it simple to understand.
Sarcasm and understatement is a specialty, and people that can find humor in anything.
My Voice Experience
I am a stage trained actor, former public defender and current newspaper editor, with a voice that can hit the back wall of a theater or land softly on a juror just inches away from me. My VoiceOver experience so far is in brief radio advertising spots, and public radio program story time broadcasts for children.
