Warm, Confident, and Professional, to Guy Next Door, Friendly, and Cool
My voice is warm and just slightly deep. I'm told it feels authoritative yet approachable, from friendly and quirky to rough and aggressive and most everything in between. As an actor, I adapt my voice to all kinds of situations. I could list many more of the typical descriptors we all use here, but you'll get the idea once you listen to my demos.

My Home Base
Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
My natural voice is standard American. I can do different American accents as well as a few British, especially while reading. My British accent tends to be on the posh side.
My specialty here in Bombay is performing in fluent Hindi with an American or British accent. I can also read Spanish and German fluently with my natural American accent.
My Voice Experience
I've been the "go-to" guy for American (and increasingly British) voice overs in Mumbai for over seven years now. I came to India to work as an actor (I was a main lead in a Hindi TV serial and fill an important niche in ads and films) but voice jobs have become the biggest part of my work. I've recorded for countless feature films, TV ads, corporate films, and websites.
My clients include: National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, Comedy Central, MTV, Cadbury's, Vodafone, Tata Docomo, MTS, Lifebuoy, Pepsi, Homeshop 18, Star World Sports, Maruti Suzuki, Chevrolet, Adidas, Castrol, LG, Bharat Matrimony, Hurix, TCS, HCL, Wipro, Carlton, Micromax, Karbonn, Spice, Lenovo, Zen Mobile, Dixcy Scott, Ekta World, Kanakia, Reliance Mumbai Metro, Larsen & Toubro, KARCO, Tata Communications, Sterling and Wilson, Electrotherm, Cap Gemini, NetCore, Vat 69, Grant's, Teachers, Mindtree, HUL, Polo, Parle Agro, Jet Privilege, Ruosh Shoes, and many more.
I stay on top of voice technique trends in the industry, but over the last seven years here in Mumbai, I've primarily learned by being a busy voice artist. By now, I know how the industry works here and how to navigate the twists and turns of a recording session, and especially how to find that sweet spot where all the myriad parties involved (agency, producers, engineer, director, client, client's mom, chaiwalla, etc.) are happy. My delivery is technically sound and my years of acting experience ensure my performance always exceeds expectations.
My Studio Equipment
Shure PG-42 Microphone at home, but I almost always record at one of the gajillion fine professional studios here in Mumbai.
As a professional actor, I enjoy doing lots of different character voices and exploring the widest range of moods and emotions a script has to offer.
As an American who's lived in Mumbai for seven years and learned Hindi, I've got the cross-cultural angle covered. I even spent two and a half years as a call center training consultant focusing on language and cross-cultural skills training. I love making sure all the stakeholders in a particular recording session are at ease, we all have a good time, and we end up with an awesome recording.
I can speak fluent Hindi (with an accent I'm told is really cool) which comes in handy all the time. I have enough skill with language and accents in general to perform in languages I've never spoken before, given a little time.
