Deep, warm, friendly, informative, intelligent
My voice is deep, warm and friendly. My style can be informative, intelligent, authoritative, trustworthy, neighborly or folksy. I can deliver reads with energy and enthusiasm; authority and gravitas; or in calm, soothing and compassionate tones. I sound like the guy next door, teacher, father or young grandfather, everyman.
Although I am a native Texan, my natural speaking voice is a very neutral North American English. However, I can deliver reads with a Texas, country or Southern accent. I can also perform with a British, Australian or Hispanic accent.
I am very skilled at cold reads, take and follow direction very well, have a fantastic ear, and am naturally clear and articulate with excellent diction and enunciation.

My Voice Experience
I have been providing voice over and narrations in one form or another for more than 30 years.
From high school plays, to college film projects, to church presentations and radio spots, to Air Force videos and ceremonies, I have always been the go-to "voice guy." I bring a combination of natural ability, well-rounded educational and professional experience, and a desire to deliver a great "read" every time. All of these have contributed to my success and kept me in demand as an amateur voice talent. Now, as a professional, I am committed to providing the best possible voice over services to my clients.
As a voice talent I have only ONE goal - client satisfaction. You have the perfect words to tell your story; I want to provide you with the perfect voice.
I served in the United States Air Force as an information systems and network administrator and technician, information systems security officer, and industrial security officer. I have an Associate of Applied Science in Information Systems Technology.
I completed Edge Studio's Phase 2 Voice Over Education program with specialized training in: copy reading and script analysis; narration and commercials; intensive technique workshops; and one-on-one coaching sessions in narration, commercials, and narration.
My Studio Equipment
I currently use a Samson Q2U dynamic microphone and Audacity for recording and editing. My studio is a corner of my home office treated with acoustic foam for soundproofing.
I currently hold a Top Secret U.S. government security clearance with SCI access and a Counter-Intelligence (CI) polygraph.
