Characters, Guy Next Door, Smooth, Gravely, Strong
I specialize in a wide variety of character voices. Anything from a melodramatic 30's style radio drama announcer to a crotchety old geezer. I've voiced powerful heroes, sleazy villains, and sometimes I've voiced both in the same production. Not only do I provide character voices but I'm also adept at narrative and announcer voices ranging from youthful and energetic, to warm and deep, to calm and soothing.

My Voice Experience
Over a decade of working in short videos and films, often creating voices for multiple characters per piece. I've done voice over, narration and ADR work on many of these projects. I've also done work on stage and have some singing experience.
I've participated in acting classes at both Grand Rapids Community College and Grand Valley State University, each with sections of emphasis regarding voice. Also I've had the benefit of continuous practice over the past decade working on numerous independent projects as well as on my own.
My Studio Equipment
MXL 990 USB Powered Condenser Microphone
Adobe Soundbooth CS4
Aside from voice acting I've done work both in front of and behind the camera, fulfilling roles as an actor, camera man, director of photography, set designer and graphic artist. These experiences have molded me into a very well-rounded performer with an understanding of the people and processes I'm involved with.
