warm, character ready, versatile baritone
My voice is naturally deep, and my natural speaking tone has been described by peers as soothing, reassuring, sexy, and expressive. I am comfortable going smooth and deep as a Barry White-style sensualist, or loud and robust for announcing and advertising. In addition, I love the challenge of accents, and I'm no stranger to international speaking styles.

My Voice Experience
Up until now my voice has been used primarily for the sake of comedy, both recorded and for Portland's weekly live talk/comedy show The Ed Forman Show, and this experience has expanded my versatility to cover a wide range of tones and dialects. For 3 years I have been the show's announcer and voice-acting specialist, performing vocal impressions of Morgan Freeman, James Earl Jones, Andy Rooney, Dr. Phil, Dick Vitale, George Harrison, John Malkovich, Notorious B.I.G., Garrison Keillor, and several original characters. I also record and perform in a satirical hip-hop group called Thuggage in which I have explored the many tones and dialects associated with the genre, often mimicking the voices and semantics of specific artists.
I hold a BA in Art History from Oregon State University, where I attended undergraduate courses in theater and interpersonal communication. Last year I attended a community college class on voice acting that served as an introduction to the industry
