Warm, Friendly, Versatile, Offbeat, Characters

Voice Description

I believe I have the talent and expertise to provide a wide range of voice types and styles from warm and homey to brash and hard-sell. I have done everything from bright and breezy commercials to technical presentations so complex that even I had no idea what I was reading - but I made it work anyway!

I feel I have enough experience to be able to adapt my voice to whatever is needed to bring an audio script to life. My performances have been described as natural, authentic, confident, conversational, trustworthy, sincere, relatable, as well as intimate, heartfelt, caring and calming, endearing, friendly, folksy, authoritative, charismatic, and classy.

At one time or another, I've been the guy next door, the old pal, the family doctor, the teacher, the student, the father, and the grandfather. I've been the British butler, the war-weary GI, the robot with a heart of gold, and the rootin’ tootin’ cowboy sidekick. I'm the young man in his 20’s and 30’s, the middle-ager in his 40’s and 50’s, and the senior retiree in his 60’s and beyond.

My voice style is reminiscent of a John Krasinski, a John Corbett, or Jon Hamm, but at times I've been called upon to be as down-home as Sam Elliott, as caustic as Denis Leary, and as dignified as Donald Sutherland -- a virtual voice-over chameleon, if I do say so myself -- which I just did!

My Voice Experience

I've worked in media for almost 30 years (although I’d hardly call it work) as a writer, producer, director, on-camera host, and, of course, voice artist.

Versatile, inventive and very easy to work with (just ask anyone!), I've recorded literally thousands of commercials, direct response ads, and promos; radio and television documentaries; corporate, industrial, whiteboard, and educational presentations; tutorials, explainers, e-learning and training programs; audiobooks, web videos, IVR prompts, and even on hold messaging.

I have also provided narration for documentary programs and series that have aired on Canadian television networks, including CTV, the History Channel, and Discovery, as well as on television stations and networks around the world. But you don’t have to travel that far to reach me. As a Voice123 customer, you are just a click or call away via this website.

Speaking of customers, whether it’s narration for whiteboard animation, corporate presentations, website, training, or character voices for cartoons or games, if you aren't completely satisfied with my product or service, then I won’t be able to build a solid and loyal clientele that keeps coming back. Communication is key and it’s not just about talking into the microphone. It’s about talking to the client, and listening, then taking your idea and bringing it to life. And it’s about doing all of this in a timely fashion and always meeting the deadline, even when it’s on the same day.

Here is a list of some of my happy clients from around the world, a list I hope to add your name to very soon!
