Deep, resonant baritone/bass. Movie trailer type.
I am a professional singer with a wide vocal range. My voice is warm and deep (a la Berry White or Don LaFontaine) but is also has a smooth quality for commercials or presentations. I have done upbeat and peppy commercials for car dealers and restaurants, as well as professional presentations such as physician's organizations and auto shows. I have been worked as both live and voice-over announcer for four of Brian Boitano's television specials on NBC and USA Network.
