My Voice Experience

I've been a full-time voice-over now for over 25 years..

People call me the Swiss Army Knife of commercials: I allways come through with a solution: a different character, a different script even. But the changes I make are allways for the better and have helped save lots and lots of national campaigns..

Because I have a mobile recording setup in my automobile, I've helped hundreds of productions meet their deadline by being able to record and transfer broadcast-quality audio within 15 minutes..
