Warm Midwestern voice and character actor
I am the voice you need to create a mood, empathize with your audience, or just grab everybody's attention.
I offer a wide range of vocal services from professional white board vocal presentations to wild and crazy. I am the banker or the Biker; I am the military Boot Camp NCO or that surfer you once met on the airplane. I am the onion farmer from Georgia or the snow removal pro from Minnesota.
I also create vocal foley effects.
