(look me up on the Web)
My voice over talent projects include radio and television commercials, Internet and Website narration, corporate and industrial narration, instructional and medical videos, IVR phone systems and on-hold messages, training and tutorial videos, animation, medical animation, and video games, documentary narration, instruction and how-to videos, and interactive adventure-based learning as well as standard e Learning courses.
My favorite voice over categories.
Business and Corporate voice over: Weather it's a standalone location, a retail chain, all the way to a large corporation, my own personal business experience helps me communicate the way a businessperson can relate to.
Internet voice over: I'd be thrilled to help your Website dominate your piece of the cloud.
Radio voice over: As a veteran radio broadcaster, I have recorded and produced 100's of radio commercials over 20+ years of broadcasting. Let me help sell your product or service on the airwaves.
Television voice over: A network quality TV voice, or an expressive, catchy character, I can help bring your television campaign to life.
eLearning voice over: eBook voice overs or other types of instructional narrations require a patient, clear, and authoritative approach. I can provide you many examples of my educational and training voice over projects.
Instructional voice over: Similar to educational but different. To have a listener understand "how to," the speaker must create a certain rhythm. It needs to be as entertaining as possible, but without sounding like entertainment.
Sports voice over is another category that gets a lot of attention. I've been fortunate to have recorded for many sports teams and organizations, most recently the Buffalo Bills of the NFL.
Medical animation voice over. Tricky pronunciations? No problem!
Former radio personality and spokesman (and current film actor) with 20+ years experience. I can bring you a wide range of styles. From the guy next door to corporate spokesperson, movie trailer, and much more.
My philosophy: As a voice-over artist, my job is to make my client succeed. This is my goal the minute we "shake hands," Let's have fun and succeed together!
Voice and Interpretation Quality: Please give my demos a listen. Authoritative, resonant, confident, friendly, refined, experienced. A clear voice, with perfect, regionalism-free diction. Professional, smooth and fluid delivery. As a trained actor, I can deliver authentic, compelling, expressive, convincing, and motivating life to your script. The voice of hundreds of radio commercials. Wide age range. Young, mature, middle-age, senior. National ad campaign voice quality. TV, radio, Internet, narration, audio books, corporate and medical presentations, motivational, religious, childrens stories, video games, tag lines and all types of voice over. Businessman, business presentations with true corporate experience to back it up. Radio spots TV commercial voice over and narration Industrial films and narratives Audio books Film and movie trailers.

Voice Over Specialties
Voice of authority. Dad or Father Image: A soothing, reassuring, and mature approach that creates trust.
Edgy: Irascible, hip, touchy, sarcastic, slick,satirical, and caustic delivery is a specialty of mine. An off the cuff, personally cutting style to add a flair to your voice over production.
Eerie: Downright creepy, sinister, menacing, and supernatural. Ask for my Rod Serling type of interpretation.
Drama: An interpretation of script meant to sound like I'm speaking directly to the listener. Not to sound announcerish or too polished. A feat of acting more than voice work. Sounds real and convincing.

Dan was quite frankly, excellent. First time we used him, but the marketing department has already decided to use him for the follow-up campaigns. He was professional, easy to work with, and delivered the finished product two days earlier than the deadline. We highly recommend him.American Drug Testing
