ALL AMERICANA DEEP...TOWN AND COUNTRY. DISTINCTIVE
Rich, deep, believable and strong, my natural resonance is effective for reporting news, radio imaging, trailers and commercials where strength is needed. My voice is often compared to Carl Castle of NPR.
For straight narration, I can warm up the tone to sound friendly and emotive. If you need a folksy or country guy, I can do that as well. Think "Wilfred Brimley" or a loveable "Santa", perfect for books and children's material. Neutral Mid-Western accent ideal for sales presentations in corporate programs. Booming for high-energy trailer, intros, award presentations.

My Voice Experience
After years of people yelling at me to 'listen to yourself' I finally accepted the fact that I had the perfect face for voice over work! I was born a frustrated bass opera singer locked in the body of a business man who liked to tell jokes and collect paychecks for convincing people to make decisions. I have trained sales agents extensively in voice closing techniques with an emphasis on real estate contracts and services.
I have done numerous vocal training seminars from real estate career and also worked in comedy and political satire both of which rely on a natural persuasiveness of vocal delivery and set material. I have contributed to various newspapers on political and economic issues . I attended Indiana Univ. and am a student of Eastern philosophy and an avid music fan of classical and jazz genres. I grew up with musicians and as such have very well-trained ears, not to mention that I am also an avid audiophile.
My Studio Equipment
neumann and others mic
analog interface with true 48 Volt phantom power,analog front end.
Samson. MK. studio monitors,

I have extensive experience as an audiophile with a thorough history of well-made recordings on high quality gear.
I am well-traveled and enjoy anything of cultural high quality. From nature programs to classic films to sport fishing I have a wide array of interests. Having grown up in a family of extremely gifted musicians and artists I have a great history of sonic nuance and subtlety. Coming from the Chicago suburbs my 'natural diction' is very hard to place which has helped me better hear accents etc. Having worked in sales for years I appreciate the business aspect of this field as well. Writing is one of my favorite hobbies and I do so daily.
