Sunny, Dynamic, Upbeat, Well timed, dude
As can be heard on my demo, my range covers everything from sleek and sexy for your finest restaurant, upbeat and charming for your run of the mill guy, to wacky and crazy for your afternoon kids cartoon hour. Presentations and narrations are handled with a flair for the English language, with both annunciation and clarity. It has a smooth bass texture, with the ability to be in a higher range as well.

My Voice Experience
I've been in working in voiceover since 2010, and have been acting since high school, doing comedy and improv since college. I know what it takes to bring a character to life on stage, on screen, as well as behind the mic.
Some of my previous VO roles include: Schmiggely in Schmiggely's Stories via Huntley Community Radio, the Frog Prince in the Cincinnati State. I've done AVO for Walmart, Goose Island Brew Company, GolfNOW, and Brownell's, as well as instructional VO for SmartGirls Software, BitBull, and continue to work regularly for Alconost Translation Services.
Other work of mine includes national commercials for KFC and Tums.
I received my BFA in Theater Performance from Ohio University, and am a graduate of the Second City Conservatory as well as the iO Theater's Improv program. I studied voice technique in London, England under Bridgette Panet as well as the School for Theater and Film in London.
Specifically for voice over, I took private lessons with Kayce Alltop.
My Studio Equipment
I have a working Blue Snowball Mic, and use Audacity for any sort of sound production.
I also have studio access through KJ Audio. Anything that needs to be sent outside of reguar home-based production is doable.
I have an ability to pick up voices, pitch, and imitation by hearing a small sample. I have a vast knowledge of movies and character voices, and can mimic and quote on command. If a new character voice is needed, I can do that too, being an improvisor, comedian, and actor.
