Voice Description

My voice is conversational and smooth for narrations or presentations. It is colorful and lively for commercials. I am a sports broadcaster, so my voice has high energy and passion as needed with controlled tone as the situation requires. I also have a wide range with the ability to go deep and high in the same script.

My professional work ranges from a commercial for a PGA tour event to an instructional narration for one of the countries top legal services companies. My years of news, sports and event announcing keeps me comfortable with any script. Perhaps my greatest strength is my experience with "being in the moment" of so many exciting and dramatic sports broadcasts that I have the ability to visualize the words on the page just like when I was broadcasting games.

Additional Skills

My passion for sports goes beyond my day job. My mind is an encyclopedia of sports trivia and as a result, my voice is authoritative and confident when I speak because I know what I am talking about. That confidence then translates to my other voice work and when people hear me speak, they believe it.
