Voice Description

Whether your looking for the 25-year-old-guy-next-door with the smile in his voice; his 10 year old lispy brother who just happens to be a computer wiz, or the warm, inviting tone of their 42 year old father: - Dan, is your man.

You may be looking for the noble old wizard who instructs with a commanding tone. The evil professor with a devious laugh, or the clear, crisp read of an online instructional video: -Dan, is your man.

Whether it's believable reads, rich, three-dimensional animation and video game characters or engaging audiobook narration; -Dan, is your man!

I've been a professional voice actor for the past ten years. I own a state-of-the-art studio in Los Angeles, CA.. I've been blessed with an incredibly large vocal range and the ability to mimic nearly every person (or animal) I encounter. My natural speaking voice is a warm, middle-high tenor. I play the guitar and have written and performed jingles for various projects. Like it says above, if you've got a project with various vocal needs, it's a good bet that, Dan, is your man!

My Training

Kalmenson & Kalmenson workshops, Elaine A. Clark, "There's Money Where Your Mouth Is." Doug Warhit - Character development/scene study, Cliff Osmond - Scene study, Curtis Arts Group seminars...And one of the best sources: college peers challenging me to "combine characters" Such as: "Do Mr. Smithers, but mix him with Fred Flintstone!" Come to think of it, I owe those guys big time; that's all I did in college!

My Studio Equipment

I use a Focusrite 2i2 Sound Card and Microphone Preamp. Sound Forge 10 is the recording software I prefer, although I do use Sony Acid and Pro Tools from time to time. My microphone is an AKG Perception 200; made for voice over. All my connection cables are Monster cables for optimum quality.

Additional Skills

I have extremely fast turnaround times. I'm professional, easy to work with and take direction very well-giving you multiple options. I'm never satisfied with a project until we both are. I only do things I'm passionate about. Voice-over started out as a gift, and now it's my life. I'm also a writer/director/artist of animated shorts.
