urbane, wry, witty, intelligent, engaging
I have a very flexible voice, capable of easily ranging from the competent, smooth business-like tone needed for industrial applications, to the omniscient narrator voice needed for a documentary presentation, to the more emotionally engaging approach needed for an audiobook or a commercial. I deliver humor well and can easily take the pace and intensity of any script up or down depending on the material to be presented.

My Voice Experience
I am a lo longer a novice, having now landed several voice gigs. I have always considered my voice and my speaking ability to be among my greatest strengths and have considerable experience speaking and making presentations in front of large groups. I've been encouraged by the seeming trend in television, radio, and audiobooks away from the professional so-called "radio voices," which I always found enormously off-putting.
I went to boarding school in Massachusetts (Groton School), to college at Harvard, and graduate school at Union Theological Seminary. After a brief foray into politics, I settled into a career in publishing and journalism, reporting and writing for Sports Illustrated before beginning my own publishing company (Bishop Books) working for someone else for a while, then going out on my own again with another publishing company co-owned by my wife and myself (Kensington Media Group). In my days in seminary I often spoke and even preached in church--I soon discovered that the ministry was not the profession for me--and in my life as a journalist and publisher I came to understand the rhythm and cadences of language in significant ways that make me, I believe, an unusually astute reader. Obviously you will have to be the judge of that. My life as an editor and writer also make me more than capable of assisting in the process of copywriting should any such help be needed.
My Studio Equipment
I have none.
I am an avid reader with a very curious mind and a highly eclectic range of knowledge. I am schooled in traditional philosophy and political history but also am completely conversant with the latest developments on the pop culture front. I love to write and create and have tremendous respect for the classics, but also am highly proficient with the latest technologies and am a voracious consumer of digital information, on both my computer as well as on my iPhone. There are very few subjects about which I do not possess at least a smattering of knowledge and my passions are many.
