Experienced character actor with a broad vocal range. Base sound is tenor mid 30s male.
I excel in character work. As a highly trained actor with many years experience in stage, film, television and of course voice acting I have rarely met a character I can't hit and I revel in nailing the performance to make the audience feel something. I have excellent comedic timing, fully understand throw to punch just the right moment for announcer spots and slice of life, dramatic pieces are a specialty. My voice tends to be in the tenor range naturally and sound like a 30s ish man but I can convincingly go deeper and higher as needed allowing me to play multiple voices on the same project.

I am a classically trained character actor from an acting family. My training began when I was 6 years old with my parents , who are both actors. I have been mentored by a variety of actors and teachers, both unknown but excellent and some fairly well known and respected such as the late Paul Mantee. I've studied voice acting with some of the best of the best such as veteran voice actor and producer Susan McCollom for general and commercial voice acting, the late Lucille Bliss (best known as Smurfette in the 80-90 era NBC cartoon) for cartoon and character voice acting, veteran voice actor and producer Jay Ginsberg. I have studied voice primarily with Joan Schumacher (my mother yes) an expert at voice production , and a dialect coach.I in fact give very popular voice over workshops to mostly packed rooms at sci fi conventions and comicons frequently.
