Warm, Friendly, Sincere, Superhero, 40s 50s anncr

Voice Description

I've got a warm, sincere, friendly voice handy for narration. And I can offer a variety of approaches for commercials from the "guy next door" voice to a movie- trailer dramatic voice.

In short, it's a voice you can trust.

On the fun side, I can do a superhero character, a 1940s, 1950s or 1960s announcer (each decade had its own unique style!) and various cartoon voices.

Let me know what you need. I love doing this--and would appreciate the opportunity to work for you!

My Voice Experience

I started doing voice overs in first grade, doing commercials into my pillow at night so no one could hear.
Gradually, my equipment has improved.

Now, I have the fun of doing spots that air internationally for Lamplighter Theatre--a movie-quality radio series on over 1600 radio outlets in 23 countries.

I also do image announcing for companies, ministries, and a radio station.

And now and then, I'll do an encore performance in my pillow. Just for fun.

My Training

I've got a BA in Communications, attended Pat Fraley's famous Voice Talent Workshop, worked in radio since 1985 (and loved it every since).

I've narrated various projects over the years from commercials to documentaries.

My Studio Equipment

Blue Microphone, Pro Tools, Pro Tools M Box

Additional Skills

I'm a writer/producer and I also direct movie-quality radio dramas. I wrote and directed for the popular Adventures in Odyssey radio series, and now produce the Lamplighter Theatre radio series.

I enjoy doing directing for animation as well.
