Voice Description

I have more than a dozen years as a news and sports broadcaster for radio and TV. I also have been a radio host for music shows and sports talk shows for nearly a decade.

My voice is deep, smooth, conversational and authoritative. I also have a sharp sense of humor and can deliver sarcastic comments with the audio version of a raised eyebrow. When I get excited or enthusiastic, people know it quickly.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

As a native Californian, my natural voice is unaccented. But as a native Californian, I can become "surfer dude" without trouble. I also have a knack for picking up accents, and I can perform as a Canadian, Minnesotan, American Southern, British (Cockney/Liverpool), and Australian.

My Voice Experience

As a broadcast journalist I've been doing voice overs for stories for more than a dozen years in a natural way that can keep listeners intrigued.

As a radio host I've done dozens of promos, liners, and ID's for various stations.

Recently, as I dive in to becoming a professional voice artist, I've done VO's for local TV commercials and am a volunteer with audio-reader services, as well as continuing as a radio sports talk and music show host.
