My Voice Experience

I am a very experienced voice actor, I've worked on camera and off for over 30 years, I've done everything a voice talent can do, narration for Discovery Channel and the National Film Board of Canada, radio drama for the CBC, animated voices for Fox Television like, for example the voice of Splinter in the Ninja Turtles series. I've voiced educational projects for PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) as well as Pacific Bell, Honda Motors of America and RCA to name a few. I've done voice over spots on radio and television for Molson's Beer, Health South, Yamaha, GTE, Maxell, Nestles, Traveler's Insurance and Shark Week documentaries for Discovery Channel.

My Training

I started singing and playing guitar back in high school, Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot songs. Went to college to study acting and voice, got a Bachelor's degree in theatre and started acting right away. Immediately got into voice work, narration, commercial voice over, (even dubbed in some questionable foreign language films back then) Learned how to loop and do ADR as well. Played music and sang in pubs for a few years and I still sing and play for fun to this day. On camera I was a series regular on the CBS/CTV cop show "Night Heat" for five seasons and have guest starred on many shows here in Los Angeles where I live. I went back to school a few years ago and got a Master's degree in theatre and continued my study of voice and also taught voice as well as the Art and Business of Voice Over.

I teach and coach voice over privately. I also teach scuba diving on the weekends.
