versatile, deep, strong, dramatic, impressions
With 25 years of experience in comedy & impressions (live, recorded, on-camera, and in radio), comedic character voice-overs are my specialty - from zany & wacky to dry and wry.
At the same time, my natural speaking voice is deep, warm, comforting, and sincere - perfect for commercials, narrations, documentaries, phone systems, etc.
Powerful, hard-hitting, and "voice-of-God" performances are also a specialty.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Having made my living for more than 25 years as an impressionist, my celebrity voices run the gamut from politicians (JFK to George W.Bush and Barack Obama), actors (John Wayne and Henry Fonda to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Charles Nelson Reilly...yes, that's right...Charles Nelson Reilly), singers like Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson, Barry Manilow and Johnny Cash, and TV stars (from Jack Benny and George Burns to Archie Bunker and Hank Hill & Friends from "King of the Hill". More than 100 impressions in all.
The vocal abilities used to perform these impressions, also allow me to do many cartoon and character voices.
Accents include: Southern U.S., Southwest (Texas) U.S., Scottish, Irish, Italian, Australian, British,

My Voice Experience
A quarter century (darn, I feel old!) of using my vocal abilities to make my living has allowed me to do so many things I love: live radio, stand-up comedy, radio and TV commercials, plus comedy writing and voice-overs for a nationally syndicated "radio prep service".
I'm looking forward to using modern technology and Voice123 to pursue my love of voice-overs - and hopefully - on-camera and spokesperson work, as well!
Honestly, my many years of experience in stand-up comedy, radio, and studio work has been my training. While I did take a commercial acting course in New York City years ago, 99% of my training has been "on-the-job".
My Studio Equipment
My in-home studio is simple but efficient. It includes EV and Blue Yeti USB Microphones, professional audio editing software.
My background in comedy assists me with good "timing" and "delivery" when reading humorous scripts - be they wacky and zany, or dry and witty.
Having been hired to write and produce dozens of radio commercials assists me in reading copy from an advertiser's point of view. I thoroughly enjoy the creative process.
