My Voice Experience

I've recorded commercials for pharmaceuticals and Health Care (Blue Cross Blue Shield) to major brands, been the "voice of friendly authority" for in-house training videos and industrials for companies (SAP), hosted a podcast series, and done lots of local radio announcer type spots. I love audio books, especially with multiple characters. I've also done voiceover for anime and cartoons.

I've also performed on Broadway and off, in leading man roles and character roles from villains to clowns. I've created numerous characters, and performed for major producers and tour organizations. Performed on stages around the world in material ranging from golden age musicals to operas to rock concerts.
