My Voice Experience

Spike has been a premiere voice/voiceover talent for longer than he'll admit. On air, radio and television commercials, movie trailers, advertising campaigns, to one of those radio and TV voices you just know you've heard before somewhere. His voice seems to get around and usually it's selling something for someone ... or introducing something or someone new and exciting. He loves the job, gigs and new experiences he finds himself in every day!
