Highlights

ILLUSTRATIVE, EXPRESSIVE, FRIENDLY, FUN and WARM

WHY ME: My studio is named "nothing rhymes with orange" because, after listening carefully to your needs and goals, I bring a unique twist to your copy with a bright, warm, and inviting delivery. I'm easy to work with, take direction well, and most importantly, heed it.

Whether you're producing a commercial, documentary, product demo, internet release, training video, audiobook, or even a corporate piece to use internally or with clients, I will bring your message to life and deliver the performance you want: the young, natural Guy Next Door; the Middle Age Training Guy; or the Friendly Old Grandpa who makes you want to rush out to buy a case of Smucker's Strawberry Jam. Ask me for a custom demo of your script and I pledge to give you a great performance.

CUSTOMER SERVICE: We all love great customer service...the kind that makes us feel truly appreciated as a customer and makes us come back again and again. I will provide you with nothing less. When hired to voice your project, I won't rest until you are absolutely delighted with the results. You can have confidence that your project will be performed as you envisioned it and most projects are turned around in less than 24 hours.
