My Voice Experience

My Voice over experience is very diverse, voicing spots for National Ad Agencies, with over 35 years of industry related projects successfully completed. Advertising Clients include Motion Picture/Commercial Studio's, Radio & TV Broadcasting Companies, National & Local Advertising Agencies. Agencies who have utilized my talents describe my voice work as "Poetry in Motion". That's a very strong statement to have to live up to (lol) I like to think I'm confident, but not "Big Headed" as some in this industry can be (not all)! The compliments are appreciated none the less. However, my biggest pleasure/Joy is to work hard on a project, and have it exceed the clients expectations & requirements/standards. When campaigns, commercials, promos, projects I voiced work out very well for my Clients, then I'm satisfied ! This has been my life's work for over 35 years now, my Bread & Butter, fueled by my passion for the kind of Audio Art I do. I'm open to new challenges, and continue to learn, and develop my sound, and vocal abilities ! Just cuz I got tons of experience does not mean that I don't have a few limitations, but if an open mind and willingness to try new things is all it takes, who knows where it takes you! I remain humble, and "Thankful" to the industry and my peers for all the years of continued projects I have had the pleasure to be involved with, and look forward to partnering with you to create the perfect project (or damn close to it!)
