Voice Description

Over the last 30 years I've discovered that versatility is my key. I can deliver almost any style from a slow soft emotional delivery to a head banging hard sell to actor/character for games. Whatever the project is; a presentation, a concert promo, a long form video, a hard driving upbeat exciting commercial, a deep emotional approach...as well as a plethura of various characters ranging from any type of American to various British accents to English-Latin American accents. I love and welcome the challenge. My voice is mature, yet can stretch to a more youthful approach. Radio and TV Promos, commercials, animation and game voicing as well as Movie Trailers are what I'm suited for best. I take direction quickly and can deliver any style or pacing. I take great care to provide the client with as many options as possible, but the most important thing to the project is the project itself...I deliver precisely what the client wants.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

By virute that I spent many years in London, England working in theatre, on stage and off, British and Spanish accents are the two dialects I can do well in many different variations such as South London, Cockney, Queens English, Scotch, and Puerto Rican/generic Latin American Spanish. In addition I can deliver a myriad of characters built on all the various European dialects spoken in English such as Italian, German, Russian, and Middle Eastern.

Additional Skills

Being able to deliver exactly what the client wants in a timely fashion is key to the job at hand. I take direction quickly and deliver projects on time. I also understand that my "middle name" at times must be "revision." I understand all too well that every project is "organic" and can change it's "face" as the project moves forward. Therefore, I always keep "space" open for a client's immediate need for revisions. Keeping an open mind during the entire creative process is tantamount to making it the best it can be. Thanks, Dave.
