Voice Description

I have a deep baritone, like so many others, but I take the title "voice actor" very seriously. My experience gives me a range that allows me to find the right voice, accent, and inflections for any job. I have done everything from radio commercials to video narration to corporate phone system messaging, and consistently earn praise for finding the perfect fit.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents come naturally to me, but the easiest are British--both proper and cockney--and Southern. Having lived all over the U.S., I'm also prepared to do Italian-American, Bostonian, and New Jersey.

My Voice Experience

I've done copywriting work for companies as large as Circuit City and even a small software company here in Cincinnati. The work I'm proudest of isn't the most glamorous, it's the natural-style vocals I've done for customer-facing training videos.
