Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I have done a few animated voice over jobs. It's one of those things, for me, that when I am asked to do something different...I'd say 60% of the time I get the client what they want but I am not chosen for it.

My Voice Experience

I have been in the production, recording business since 1975. I began writing music jingles in 1978 and in 1980 started being asked to do voice over work. I 1987 I was hired to be an on staff engineer at LA Studios in North Hollywood. There, I beocame one of the top most requested engineers on staff. I was the late great Ernie Anderson's engineer and did occasional side voice work with and for Ernie. I also worked directly with, and use to hire, the also late great Don LaFontaine. One of your current talents, David Jeremiah, is a very good friend of mine. I actually helped him create his first vo demo reel the opened the door to his now very successful career.

A quote from the late great Don LaFontaine to me 1991 La Studios. "Dave...you can't be me and you can't be Ernie Anderson. You can only be you and in that...you will be the best you can be."
