folksy, elegant, crackly, ironic,smooth, friendly,
Warm mid-range with a little crackle or rasp for a friendly spokesman or man on the street; a smooth, manly elegance for sophisticated sales projects; gritty, rugged and low for period and atmospheric pieces; educated, articulate, and precise for technical narrations. Can be pompous & pretentious or cozy & grandfatherly; bleak & weary for character pieces, or up-beat and energetic for hard sells. Brings a natural, real-person feel to everything--a sense of authenticity.

My Voice Experience
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Trained as an actor, I began doing voice work in Buffalo, NY while doing theatre & teaching at Buffalo State. Moving back to Seattle, where I was pursuing a Ph.D. at UW, I began actively pursuing voice work in 1978. After 3 years and while I had a national TV spot running, I moved down to the big pond--LA. I got an agent and booked a few gigs--movie trailers, commercials. After about 3 years, I moved to Las Vegas, went into the gaming industry and did voice work as a sideline--commercials, narrations; affiliated with Studio Center for 10 years; announcer for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, documentaries. Since separating from Studio Center 3 years ago, I've been ramping up to hustling aggressively for myself in the new on-line world of voice acting.

Education in Spanish, French, and Italian enables me to correctly pronounce words in those languages, though my vocabulary is inadequate for conversational or colloquial speech. Years of advanced education enable me to speak technical, scientific, and medical jargon authoritatively and convincingly.
