Conversational Character Accents Young Resonant
The best word to describe my VO delivery would be conversational. I have the ability to take any type of copy, whether it is commercial dialog, phone systems, or technical specifications, and make it sounds like I am just having a conversation with you.
The quality of my voice is a rich baritone. However I can easily change it to make it deep and gritty or younger and more care free by changing the pitch, rythym, and intention.
I am an accent and character voice coach, and am very adept at taking direction. I can give each client many different options as far as voice quality and delivery, depending on the type project and what each individual client is looking for.

My Voice Experience
The first VO job I ever booked was for a commercial campaign in the Midwest for the cable provider Mid-Continent Communications. It was back in 2003 and lasted for over three years. I was cast in the television commercials but the campaign also included radio and print ads. That was the beginning of my love for voice over. Since then I have worked on animated television pilots, radio commercials, web series, and telephone recordings.
Bachelors Degree in Theater Arts from Minnesota State University Mankato.
Six years training with Anthony Meindl's Actor Workshop (ongoing).
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Animation classes at The VoiceCaster.
My Studio Equipment
I have my own in home studio with the following equipment...
-audio-technica AT2020 microphone
-Logitech speaker system
-sound baffles (mic stand and free standing for back bounce)
I have been coaching accents and voice for 6 years and been studying for 15. I have an intimate knowledge of vocal musculature and phonetics.
A big part of my degree was in musical theater, and am familiar with that aspect of voice as well.
I worked in the cell phone industry for many years and am very knowledgeable about technical terms, phrasing, and the need to have the ability to deliver them in a conversational understandable way.
