Guy next door with multiple characters
My voice is clear, bright and easy, thanks to busy radio career. But I have more than enough personality for commercials and upbeat projects. I love having fun with characters and accents for videogame and animation work. Years of news broadcasting have also taught me the importance and gravitas of a trustworthy delivery for documentary narration and corporate products.

My Voice Experience
Videogames were the first voiceover jobs I landed, doing several characters for a series of Nancy Drew games. I have since voiced national commercials for Taco Bell, Comedy Central and Honda and regional commercials for dozens of clients. I have been working in radio for more than two decades, voicing commercials and station promos of all varieties for years. On the air in one of the largest radio markets in the world, I've also developed characters, accents and impressions on the fly, depending on the news of the day.
