guy's guy,conversational ,non-announcer,confident
My signature commercial sound is the guy's guy read. understated confidence, less is more, not pushy or selly.
My narration is balanced and thoughtful, with emphasis on telling the story that the givin project deserves.
I can get darker and deeper, or lighter and brighter, to suit any promo read and know how to pack alot of depth into those shorter reads.
Also i can let loose for animation projects and let the characters fly. "regular guy" type voices for video games are right up my alley as well.

My Voice Experience
I have been studying and recording voice over for three and a half years. I have taken group classes, attended workshops and done dozens of private sessions. I take this very seriously and you'll be more than satisfied with the reads I can deliver for your project. I look forward to proving it to you!

Also at Radio Ranch, dozens of "sharpshooter" workshops featuring different guest directors ranging from voice over agents to booth directors to producers.
I've taken 2 years worth of private instruction from Dave Walsh, a very successful voice actor and teacher with over 20 years experience in the field. It is in these private sessions that I have really found and developed my signature sound.
In addition I have been singing and playing in bands for over 20 years. I've been involved in many styles of music along the way, including funk, rock, reggae, hip hop, jazz, and even some country too!
My Studio Equipment
I have a fully sound proofed vocal booth at my home. It blocks out all outside noise and isolates the voice for a clean, clear recording to be delivered.
I record on a MacBook Pro using the "Garage Band' program. I find it's simplicity an advantage for recording and editing voiceover.
My mic is a Rode NT1-A condenser microphone, which i run through a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 pre amplifier.
My headphones are Sennheiser HD 280 pro
I am a native of the city of Los Angeles. Something that most people seemed surprised to hear when I tell them. I am very much engaged in an outdoor "California" lifestyle. I have been surfing and skating my entire life and consequently find it very easy to connect with any copy that comes within similar realms of freedom and expression.
Ive been singing and playing bass, drums, and guitar in bands for over 20 years and find that it's absolutely an asset when it come to voiceover. There's a certain musicality to reading aloud and all copy essentially has a song within it's story.
Also I've written 2 feature length scripts over the past few years, as well as countless pages of song lyrics in my life. I think I have a clear understanding of how to put words together for maximum resonance and effect which is key in interpreting how other peoples words should be read.
Lastly, I've been fortunate enough to travel all over the world since the age of 18. I've been to Europe, Southeast Asia, Central and South America, as well as Mexico, Canada, and all over the U.S. Travel broadens an individual in innumerable ways and this depth of experience finds it's way into my reads without fail. I look forward to showing you what I can do to enhance and support your project.
