quirky, authoritative, character, conversational
My voice has the range, control and diversity for any project you need. It's been described as quirky, hip, edgy, youthful, warm, friendly, upbeat, trustworthy, conversational, professional, authoritative and most of all, versatile. As a trained singer and seasoned actor, I know how my instrument works. I can produce a wide range of emotions, sounds, tones and timber, whatever your project requires. I specialize in character voices with a variety of age ranges and accents. I also have professional work experience as a former broadcast journalist and was a soldier in the U.S. Army.
I have a passion for acting and especially voice-over. As a former soldier in the US Army with a year long deployment to Iraq, I have an exemplary work ethic and embrace a strong, professional integrity. As my client, you will be my #1 priority and receive the finest quality results for your project. I'm not satisfied until you are!

Besides voiceover, I have been a stage and film actor for over 20 years. The skills I've developed as a storyteller are ideal for any project, but especially video games and animation. I have a strong work ethic and am a quick learner. As a musician, I have a finely tuned ear and mastery over my vocal sound. As an actor, I can tap into any emotion or feel you are looking for and am quick to take direction. As a former journalist, I know how to direct myself, edit and copywrite scripts. I also have experience working in public relations and marketing. I have a strong work ethic and flexible schedule so I can produce materials quickly and efficiently.
I bring a lot of skills to the table and am happy to work with you to produce the specific product you are looking for.
