Wry, character, rich, warm, storyteller, national
I am one of the top VO Artists in the country, with over 30,000 National TV Spots, Cartoons, Movie Trailers, Network Promos and Documentaries under my belt.
I specialize in a variety of Announcer sounds, from standard to stylized. (My "March of Time" Announcer is very popular.)
I also get a LOT of work doing dialects, especially British - including Aussie, Irish, Scottish, etc. I have actually been hired by Ad Agencies in The U.K. and Australia who couldn't tell I wasn't a native.
And Characters? I am one of the top Animation Actors in Hollywood, so character voices are plentiful and polished.
Oh, yeah, I'm the voice of Yoda, Admiral Ackbar, C3PO, Admiral Yularen and other Star Wars characters for Disney/Lucasfilm for Movies, TV Series, games and rides at Disney Parks worldwide. And The Monorail voice.
I've also been the live Announcer for three AFI Lifetime Achievement Award telecasts, as well as the Live Broadcast Announcer for the 78th, 80th, 83rd and 84th Academy Awards on ABC, and the Opening Narrator of ABC's 90th Oscars broadcast.
