::CUSTOMER SERVICE::

I have decades of experience serving customers of all stripes. I work very hard to make sure I provide precisely what you need for your project. It’s my job to make my client look like a hero to whomever they need to please...so my customer service is unparalleled. I’ve been an in-demand voice talent now since the early 1980s, and for good reason. I’d love to be the voice of your next project.

::AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL::

With regular clients including national and international companies such as Nokia, Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, Omnivera, STMicroelectronics and Sequent, I am constant in demand for corporate image and marketing videos, E-Learning and Web-Based training, broadcast commercials, documentaries, product demos, property listings and telephony projects.

I am experienced and well-read on technology issues, and comfortable with a wide range of medical terminology and religious content delivered in a comfortable but confident manner. I have received a lot of feedback over the years about the higher retention levels that learners have experienced listening to my voice than others who had previously served in the same role.

::A RICH, CONFIDENT, ACCESSIBLE VOICE::

It's been noted by clients that I have a gift for taking messy, convoluted writing and topics…and untangling them and making them accessible. Whether or not I have specific experience in a business, I seem to absorb and translate “shop talk” really well. I’d love the chance to breathe life into the text of your next presentation.

I’ve made my living primarily with my voice for over 30 years. Thousands of commercials, E-Learning projects and textbooks on tape. Some of that time was in radio (including a lot of commercials) and as voice-for-hire. You’ve heard me on radio & TV, serving as the Voice of God at various live awards ceremonies (including for the PGA and The Ohio State University), as the voice on-hold or navigating you through a company’s voice mail system, as the voice of intros to several high-profile podcasts, as characters in various videogames, and even a few audio books.

Columbus, Ohio, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I have done some pidgin versions of Russian, German, French and British accents. A bit of Southern American stuff, too. Not excessively experienced in any of these. But it has worked in a lighthearted, character-type context.

My Voice Experience

As your friendly neigborhood Male Voiceover Professional...while I can do almost anything VO-wise, most of my recent work is in the field of eLearning (aka WBT or web-based training, online training, online instruction and explainer videos)...with clients including many projects, particularly on bookkeeping and security for The U.S. Department of Defense, technical training and marketing presentations for Nokia, audio textbooks for Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, product marketing for STMicroelectronics, medical training narration for Octapharma Plasma and many others. My natural speaking voice is full and in the deeper range, though I have a fair amount of flexibility in how I am able to use it.

My voice has been variously described as Animated, Approachable, Arrogant, Athletic, Authentic, Authoritative, Baritone, Believable, Bold, Bright, Business Like, Cartoonish, Cheerful, Comforting, Confidence, Confident, Contemporary, Conversational, Cool, Corporate, Current, Deep, Deeper, Dramatic, Dude Next Door, Educational, Emotion, Emotional, Entertaining, Fresh, Friendly, Genuine, Goofy, Guy Next Door, Hard Sell, High Energy, Hip, Informative, Knowledgeable, Mature, Natural, Professional, Promotional, Raspy, Regal, Relatable, Relaxing, Severe, Silly, Sincere, Smooth, Soft Sell, Sophisticated, Speak, Strong, Tough, Upbeat, Urgency, Urgent, Wacky, Warm, Whisper

In the following types of work:
Accents, Audio Book, Audiobook, Book Trailers, Broadcast, Business, Call to Action, Cartoon, Commercials, Donut, Donut Fills, Education, eLearning, E-Learning, Game Voices, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), Internet, Marketing, Movie Trailer, On-Hold Messages, Narrator, Product Intro, Promo, Radio, Tags, Telephony, Television, Video Game Voices, Videogames Web Audio and Video

I've done everything from thousands of standard broadcast radio & TV commercials to the voice of automated robotic mascots in schools and restaurants...and installation videos to accompany various retail products. I've been the character voice of an animated pencil, narrated stories and audio books for adults and children, done movie trailer-style intros for productions of various sizes, and been the live or prerecorded announcer Voice of God (VoG) for The Professional Golfer's Association (PGA), The Pampered Chef, Southern Living at Home, The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges, Kroger, Polaris Amphitheatre and Lane Bryant. I've done many political commercials, from local and issues races all the way up to two US Presidential campaigns.

I've also done a fair amount of work in video games...often playing the role of narrator, king, general, coach or other authority figure. But I'm game to tackle most kinds of role playing. I also have a great deal of telephony (on-hold messages, voice mail and IVR prompts) work under my belt, for company of all sizes.

I take great pride in ensuring that my clients are downright impressed with my work on their behalf.

My Training

My training has been my decades of experience on projects of all sorts…being widely-read and aware of technology and world events. For example, I handle technical and media terminology, acronyms, model numbers and proprietary terminology with ease.

My Studio Equipment

As a client, you can expect to receive high quality, pristine audio, delivered most commonly via web download in either MP3 or WAV formats. Other formats are also available as needed.

Voice overs are recorded within an ultra-quiet, acoustically-treated *Whisper Room* using a Blue Baby Bottle microphone for superb vocal sound.
