Manly, professional, soulful, trustworthy
Distinctive, masculine, authoritative, calming and commanding - playful and rye, charming and enchanting or traditional announcery for commercials, precise and professional for presentations, gruff and tuff or dramatic and sincere, and in general can play it a little more country or a little bit county club... a mixture of Ken Nordine and Lou Rawls.

During the summer, I interned at ad agencies and radio stations, where I did my first vo promo work at 96.5 KXPK in Denver.
I took my first voice over class in the mid-90's in NYC. When I first moved to LA in 2000, I had the good fortune of meeting and being tutored by the great Don Lafontaine.
More voice over education with classes at Kalmenson& Kalmenson in Burbank, and also worked in the web production dept at 89.9 KCRW in Santa Monica.
