Additional Skills

Film and Television Actor.
Live corporate event voice over.
Emcee for live events.
Sports announcer and reporter.
Former Radio Station DJ.

I have owned and operated radio stations, currently own a small business and have experience with professional services such as attorneys, accountants, IT professionals, and other fields.

Very comfortable as an authority figure, but like CEO's in the real world, people skills must show through. So a warm but authoritative voiceover role would fit me well.

I also do well with dramatic voiceover roles, and that's supported by my acting endeavors.

And finally, I would like to say it's a pleasure and duty of a voiceover artist to work with the client to adjust the product until the client is 100% satisfied. In fact, the process of refining a performance is one of the best parts of the job!

Looking forward to speaking with you.

Thank you!
