As an actor and voice over artist I am always interested in what makes the copy different and what language will reach people. My approach is always the same, start with truth and then push the boundaries of character and style until you start to lose that truth.

My work in voice over has been largely commercial though on stage and screen I have done everything from Shakespeare to Improv to Musicals about Superheroes.

My Studio Equipment

I am happy to record scratch tracks at home and export them in any media format. I record using Soundtrack Pro in the Final Cut studio using a large diaphragm condenser mic (Audio Technica 4045) with pop filters and sound baffling and an Apogee Duet DI.
If file delivery is the goal, I'm happy to upload stems to an FTP site. Recording through ISDN will be available in the coming months but can be fast tracked for specific needs.

Additional Skills

I've been a working in the fields of acting, voice work, and production (both live and recorded) for over ten years. I'm organized, professional, collaborative, and understand your needs as well as I do my job.
Because I take care of my health and my voice my work is consistent and dependable.That has allowed me the pleasure of working with clients for long campaigns, some as long as 7 years.
I'm written original content for clients, am willing to improvise, and adjust copy on the fly. I love my work and the challenges it provides.
