With a neutral accent, my read style varies from strong and confident to warm and informative to high energy to romantic and sexy, sincere and calm.. Clients say my voice is believable, pleasing, natural and engaging. I can easily deliver styles ranging from natural and conversational to caring and sincere. I also specialize in delivering high energy reads, full of enthusiasm.. From commercials for radio or TV to explainer videos and narrations, to e-learning and telephone messaging, I will deliver exactly what you need for your projects.
Private auditions are always welcome and I hope to have the chance to demonstrate my skills to you. Thanks!

With over 3 decades of experience in television, radio and narration voice over work, I provide clients with exactly what they need and want to maximize their marketing efforts. As a voice actor, I understand there's no place for ego in business relationships and I pride myself on being very easy to work with, cordial, reliable service oriented. I'm not satisfied until my clients are very happy and satisfied with my work.
I crave one-on-one client direction and use Skype to connect with casting directors, producers and clients.
My specialties cover a wide spectrum of styles from very caring to "knock-your-socks-off" high-energy reads. My commercial demo on this site is short but demonstrates a very wide range of styles and I'd love to know you've listened!
I thrive on private auditions so let's get started today and thanks!
