Believable, Emotive, Engaged, Genuine, Personal, Real, Relatable
Smooth, mellow, with bright overtones, and a hint of sophistication. Sounds like something off a wine menu, doesn't it? But that's my natural voice!
Of course I possess range as well – from edgy, gruff, hip and high-energy reads, to character voices, as well as poignant, compelling deliveries – all I require is a bit of direction and feedback to provide exactly what you're looking for.
Just as important as my skill and experience as a voice actor are, my desire to go above and beyond to satisfy the needs of my clients takes precedence.
My goal is to make this experience as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. Whether you want an exact, word-for-word copy read, or are looking for creative additions and interpretations, I'll adjust accordingly to ensure your satisfaction.

My Voice Experience
I was introduced to the world of voice overs while working my way through college in the late 80's at Cablevision of Central Florida, running the audio board for live in-studio and remote productions. One day before setting up for a live show, one of the producers asked me if I would read some copy for a quick advertising tag as their regular voice talent was away. Little did I know that afterward I would be hooked.
I started voicing everything I could including answering machine greetings, company IVR systems, On-Hold messages, and corporate slide show presentations. It was work I really and truly enjoyed.
While I'd like to spin a Cinderella story, the hard truth is at that time, it was extremely difficult to get work without representation, and try as I might, the doors to my happily ever after remained closed.
Skip forward to the late 90's with the digital revolution in full swing and new opportunities opening for voice talent. Once again I begin to take on voice over projects, honing my skill, and slowly moving forward one step at a time.
Today I am proud to say that being a voice over actor is my chosen career. It is a never-ending journey as I continue to make new discoveries each and every day, learning from the shared wisdom of my colleagues, and delighting my clients with exceptional deliveries of their messages.
B.A. Radio and Television Communication from the University of Central Florida with coursework specializing in voice.
Much of my free time is spent online, reading articles about the voice over industry, learning new techniques to explore in Adobe Audition, how to improve my recording environment, and interviews with the legends of voice.
My Studio Equipment
Presently, I make use of the following equipment:
• Sennheiser MKH-416 - Shotgun PGM
• Symetrix 528E - Mic-pre and Audio Processor
• Aphex Channel - Mic-pre and Audio Processor
• MOTU Ultralite MK3 - Hybrid Audio Interface
• Adobe Audition CS5.5
• Custom-built Acoustically Neutral Sound Booth
A dedicated portion of my earnings are directed towards the continual evolution of my studio, to improve my audio chain and ultimately add Source Connect and ISDN connectivity to better serve my clients.
Before most technical support call centers made their move overseas, I spent years behind the headset guiding customers to proper configuration of the computers and troubleshooting various hardware and software issues.
