Guy next door, Imaging, characters & impressions

Voice Description

Hi,

I've done hundreds of Regular guy, or guy next door style reads.

My regular voice has been described as smooth and clear, but It's also very versatile, and I'm the guy at the radio station who has to do all the character and cartoon voices. My imaging has been called "gen X" and "Gen Y". I also do lots of impressions, (but have to make them more vague in commercials to avoid legal action:).

Hope we can work together!
