Experience

Interned, taught and assisted in casting for many years at the top Voice Over school in the US, Voice One. I've done voice over jobs for corporate training, radio and television commercials, podcasts, e-learning modules, ESL programs, video games, mobile phone applications, and trade show presentations.

Doing some directing these days and have been used by Sega as a dialect consultant for their video games.

As you'd expect from an actor who has been in the business for a few years, I know my range and only submit for jobs I feel I'm right for. I understand the value of a true professional and conduct my business with the idea that I'm not happy, until the client is.

As a child, I yearned to be a soccer commentator. In 2006 this dream came true. Cisco used me as a commentator for a trade show presentation related to the World Cup in Germany.

Credentials

Education

Dozens of acting and voice-over classes over the past 10 years. I still take at least one class every quarter.

Studied Dialects with one of the top phonetics and dialect coaches in America, Doug Honorof of Yale School of Drama and Tisch NYU.

Studied the Meisner Technique with Sanford Meisner's last protege, Jim Jarrett.

I can recommend Dave without reservation. He works effectively and productively, always planning the steps necessary to achieve his objectives. He has the ability to communicate requirements clearly and diplomatically, and a willingness to expand his knowledge as needed to get the job done. I think he was particularly effective in managing people because he demonstrates integrity, personally and professionally. He brings a lot of value to his work, whatever tasks he takes on.
