Easy-going Authority, Character and Humor
A clean, clear TV and radio sound. For industrial and corporate narrations, a resonant and commanding tone that is authoritative and professional without being pushy -- but can also be warm, soothing and intimate.
For radio and TV imaging, a strong and defined presence.
For commercials, plenty of character, wry humor and fun, believably covering the field from cowboy to cosmopolitan.
For video games, extreme characters from thin and prissy to grungy, down and dirty texture.
