It’s truly wisdom that I live by... “The best way to get what you want in life is by helping enough others get exactly what they want.” By providing you with top quality audio using state of the art equipment, with a lightning fast turnaround, all while making sure the finest detail is not overlooked, I have been able to build quite a clientele over the years that keep coming back for more.


I voice many National and International clients, but some of the most satisfying work is helping charities such as Good News Ministries in Indianapolis and watching them grow over the years to help so many.

My regular commercial client list includes names like Live Nation Global Touring and being their “go to” voice for major tours from Garth Brooks to Michael Buble, from Broadway to Tony Bennett. I also have had the honor of voicing for Papa Murphys, Ringling Brothers, All Major Television Networks (ABC, CBS, Fox etc), Toyota National Campaigns, Jos A Bank, AMA Supercross, Ashley Furniture, Russell Peters, Fox Sports One, Ford/Chevy/Dodge/Hyundai/KIA and dozens of others.

My corporate client list includes The US Army, American Express, Tyco Electronics, Lixil Group Japan, A.T Kearney Global Medical, Walmart, Honda, Feld Entertainment, Veterans Affairs Administration, NOARK Electric, FEMA,

E-Learing and Training continues to surprise me with incredible growth for recent clients such as Citibank (Citi), WSO2 Data Analytics, American Heart Association, Adobe, VAC Environmental Services, Addiction Studies Institute, U.I Lapp GmbH, Siemens

I look forward to making your project shine and will work hard to help you in any way I can to come in under time and within budget.


I enjoy the label of having a “chameleon” type of voice versatility. Through years of hard work, my voice has no accent but I can interject a touch of southern warmth, or the sharp edge of the New York area dialect always with 5 star feedback from clients. Powerful to smooth as silk or just your friendly guy next door. Commercial, promo, internal corporate, sales, imaging. Whatever message you need conveyed, I have the years of experience and drive to make your voiceover exactly what it should be, a bridge between product and emotion that makes you lean forward and listen.

I am very fortunate to be doing a job that I love so much and can honestly say, that not a day goes by that I am not thankful for being able to work and creatively play at the same time.

Look forward to working with you soon.

My Voice Experience

We actually tried to figure out the number of spots Jim has voiced over his multi decade career in voiceovers. Give or take 5 or 10, the total came to roughly over 100,000. That's quite a lot of experience. We'd say he "gets it"
