engaging, intelligent, warm, expressive

Voice Description

My delivery and tone is engaging, articulate, warmly resonant and dramatic when appropriate. Technical "explainers" and instructional narration are specialties, but I've also been successfully voicing corporate promotion, commercial spots, on hold and much more.

I'm known for going the extra mile to satisfy the producers who hire me. I'm all in when it comes to customer satisfaction.

My Voice Experience

Decades of diverse voice over, narration and radio and TV spot VO and production. Although at one time, I was PA announcer for Michigan State football, these days I avoid excited car dealer reads and specialize in more mid-low tempo projects. Again, documentary, educational, technical narration is a speciality.

My Training

I gained experience first through my radio & TV career in Boston and Lansing, Michigan, which began in the 70's. Later in voice over, which began in the 80's. My experience has been strictly hands-on and direct.

BA, History, Michigan State University.
