There's a reason my clients are saying these things:

"I have been working with John for a couple of years now, and with every project, I hope my client picks his voice as I know the process is going to be seamless from start to finish. He is extremely responsive and will go out of his way to provide the best service whether it's last minute revisions or same day turnarounds." -Rohan Narang, Animator/Video Producer, Symantec

"One of the best young voice actors I’ve worked with in a long time.” -Joe Flood, Audio Engineer/Producer, Porsche

"John’s a great talent and a pleasure to work with. His ability to deliver a conversational yet upbeat tone has been a perfect fit for the A&W brand.” -Jason Majewski, Sr. Copywriter, A&W

While my skills, services, and equipment are important factors, successful projects are built on a foundation of trust, communication, and teamwork.

When you and I work together, we will build that foundation together.

Then, your project will be a smashing success, too.


You've probably heard my voice before if you're in the US. Since 2015, I have been the national, commercial brand voice of Autotrader.

My other recent commercial clients include Porsche, Dreamworks, NBC Universal, A&W, Jockey, Lumosity, and hundreds more.

My recent corporate client include AT&T, 3M, Intel, Symantec, and hundreds more.

For AT&T, I've recorded hundreds of hours of voice over for their mobile device online training videos.


I have a young, trustworthy, hip voice with just the right touch of gravitas. That gives it an edge. Like a cool older brother. But I'm also very versatile. I can go from a young, upbeat, and energetic sound to an older, wise, emotional, and introspective sound.

Whether you are producing a TV or radio commercial, an online explainer video, an in-store demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's voicemail, I have the experience, tools, and versatility to make it sound freaking awesome.

I jumped into doing voiceovers full-time right after college and have never looked back.

It excites me and drives me every day.

If you're looking for someone you can trust who has a lot of experience and my kind of voice, I'm your voiceover guy.
