I have a wide range of voices, but most of them are on the less subtle side and I like to play over the top characters in the vein of the old looney toons shorts. I am able to make my voice extremely growly and rugged and I am not shy about screaming at the top of my lungs to get the performance. If you are searching for something "in your face," I'm your man.

I have done voiceover work for numerous spots on MTV while I was working there as an employee. I became their go-to voice over actor in addition to my daily duties. I've also done voice work for a cartoon pilot that never aired where I voiced every male character. I've been doing voices my whole life and can do anything from sports announcer and action trailers to whiny pre-pubescent teens and grumpy old men. I also do a killer Metal Gear Solid impression.
My "real" job is as a freelance director and producer. I've directed and produced numerous shorts and hundreds of segments for MTV, but I've always had a knack for voices. I've always done the VO's for any of the projects I've worked on and through those, I've been asked to lend my voice to other projects.
You may have heard my "movie trailer" voice on a number of MTV Movie Awards promos throughout the years.
