Mature, strong, sincere, funny, serious, versatile
If there's one word to describe my voice and style, it's "versatile." I can do hard-sell, soft-sell, and pretty much anything in between. My voice acting skills also include character voices, some celebrity impersonations, and cartoon voices, as well as a number of accents and dialects.
One other useful characteristic of my voice is that it cuts through background music exceptionally well. This means you can mix the music reasonably high and my voiceovers still come through loud and clear.

My Voice Experience
The seeds of my voiceover career were sown while I was in high school in the mid-1960s. We had a campus radio station at which I was one of the first members. I continued to learn and grow in college radio and, while still a student, began my professional career in 1969. I worked as a radio DJ for the next 7 years and started picking up a few freelance voiceover jobs along the way.
In 1975 I was recruited by one of my voice over clients, an ad agency, to join their staff where I eventually became Creative Director.
In 1978 my old radio station asked me to come back as Production Director and I remained in that position until 1997. While there, another of my freelance clients, the leading local TV station, recruited me to become a staff announcer, a position I have held since 1986.
My training in the voice-over business began in college at the University of New Hampshire. While heavily involved with the campus radio station I had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, some extraordinarily talented people. In addition, several of my fellow students and I wanted more radio and TV education than the course of study initially offered, so we persuaded the Dean of the Speech & Drama Department (itself an offshoot of the English Department) to offer a degree program in Mass Communication. Not only did I subsequently receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in that major, but my friends and I were instrumental in developing the curriculum.
In my 30+ year professional career I have been equally fortunate to have worked with several more exceptionally gifted individuals (some would call them "genius") and have learned as much as I could absorb from them.

Besides being a voiceover artist, I spent 18 years as a radio Production Director. That job involved producing and editing countless hours of audio. Many of those early years were spent editing tape the old-fashioned way, with a razor blade between my teeth, but for at least the last decade I have worked with digital audio.
An additional requirement of my Production Director position was writing copy. Over the years I have written literally thousands of commercials, a number of which have won awards.
I have been a regular contributor of tool reviews and, occasionally, humor pieces to the national woodworking publication Woodcraft Magazine and was Associate Editor of "The Collins Complete Woodworker," a book co-produced by Harper Collins Publishers, Woodworkers Journal Magazine and the Smithsonian.
