Voice Description

Luke has been a ventriloquist for 30 years; so as a Voice Talent, a number of voices are at his disposal, each with their own unique personality. This is of great benefit to the client whether Luke is working from his own studio or on location. His desire and ability to follow direction along with his creative approach to the copy makes for a professional and reliable read.
His experience as a ventriloquist has also given him the ability to get into character quickly with a reality that comes across quite believable. Being able to switch from one character to another at the snap of a finger is a plus as well.
Luke can put the undercurrent of energy behind a calm, smooth narration, be over the top in an "in your face" commercial, or competent and knowledgeable in a business presentation, but his dream gig would be character animation; something that will be around long after he is gone making a difference of some kind in the lives of others - especially kids.

Additional Skills

Having been on the management staff of a major hospital system for over five years in the Environmental Services Dept., I have an eye for detail and the ability to ascertain what someone is trying to detail or get to whether they are doing a good job of it or not. That comes in pretty handy when reading copy and listening to or simply reading online direction.
