Highlights

Voice described as bedroom baritone - can twist and turn it as need be into a rapid delivery sports style read or newsy - as spots demand. Both authoritative and conversational styles. Best character voice is a toothless old-timer, prospector type; NFL in the style of John Facenda; and mystery in the style of Rod Serling of Twilight Zone. Fair Marlon Brando imitation, Cagney, Bogey, street thug, mafiosa, Bronx accent, Boston, India, a Hollywood-style Irishman, passable Latino, Brit in manic style of Monty Python. Also, a pampered, pseudo-aristocratic aging, vacuous preppie; bumpkin and various evil (Website hidden) the record, got a top rating from Peter Thomas - one of the top 3 voiceover actors in the business.
