Deep, Resonant, Soothing, Smooth, Friendly
My voice has a deep, resonant quality which can be a voice of authority or take on a playful, friendly tone. Others have described my sound as soothing and smooth. I have a wide range of tone, pitch and vocal capacity to fit your every voice-over need. I can provide impersonations of well-known commercial characters and personalities, as well as a wide range of foreign accents. My delivery style, like my personality, is upbeat and straight-forward. I have experience as a Radio DJ and Commercial Producer, have dabbled in Stand Up Comedy and have performed in Local Theater. If you are looking for a versatile, knowledgeable and enthusiastic voice-over talent, please take a listen to my demo.

My Voice Experience
I started out in Radio in Seattle in 1983 as an intern at radio station KSPL while going to Broadcasting School. I was also doing Stand Up Comedy.
I was hired to do a 3 to 5 minute comedy routine that aired Monday thru Friday at 7:30 am. The bit was called the Funniest Man in the World. I also produced a radio show on the weekends, playing Rock and Roll from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.
I was hired by another radio station KYYX in 1984 to direct the production of on air commercials.
I recently completed voice over training at Such A Voice. I graduated from Ron Bailey School of Broadcast located in Seattle, WA in 1984. I performed in theater in high school and college. I performed in Stand Up Comedy for several years locally in Seattle, WA.
My Studio Equipment
I have a complete voice over recording studio. The studio walls and ceiling have been covered with acoustical tile. I have Presonus Studio One software, Scarlett 2i2 Focusrite USB recording interface and a RODE NT1-A studio condenser microphone.
I have a natural talent for improvisation. Speaking and acting, whether in my normal voice or in character mode, comes easy for me as I enjoy and have practiced much of my life. I am reliable, responsible, punctual and pride myself in meeting the clients needs and deadlines. I am a quick study.
