My Voice Experience
I began my voice over career around 1993 in Nashville,Tennessee. Not taking it too seriously at first while busy trying to make it big in the music biz and running my own commercial photography studio. While singing demos in Nashville studios, I was asked to voice a few projects. “You mean just talk?”, I asked. I was starting to find out then that my spoken word was more “unique” than my singing voice. Learning a whole new form of expression, I refined my craft through acting workshops, local theater performances and on-camera work.
As time went by and frustration grew with the music business, I found myself voicing radio/TV ads, music promotions, audio books and corporate videos. Establishing my warm and rugged, storytelling AMERICANA signature sound. My voice, face and physical presence match up perfectly and lead me to pursue on-camera work as well.
One of my agents reps me as "the perfect Americana sound."
I’ve become a leading voice for the basic industries that keep America moving forward...construction and manufacturing, agriculture/equine, energy production, trucking, community banking, health care, finance and insurance as well as outdoor sports, travel and tourism, education and entertainment. I am a colorful voice for film, television, museum and corporate documentary and audio books. My combined background of music, acting and photography have shaped me into a seasoned voice over artist with a great “ear” for audio and an imaginative “eye” for the visual.

"Rick, I wanted to express to you our heartfelt thanks for your help getting "Inside Reining" off to such a good start. I know it has involved tight deadlines, quick turnarounds, and some very challenging copy, but you have carried it off like such a pro.... I knew when I first heard your audition that you were the right voice for this project and I'm so glad it worked out for you and for us. We look forward to working with you on the remaining episodes as well as other future projects."

I've worked with literally dozens of folks...you're the best... such an ability to deliver the line...all of the technical aspects of your recordings were as good as any I've ever received. Great work and look forward to it again."
