San Ramon, California, US
I hear my voice as smooth and conversational. A voice that is ideal for your go-to, trusted announcer or the friendly guy next door. Others hear my voice and have described it as "strong and bold; rich and warm with a nice confident tone." From commercials, to longer form training and narrations, I strive to deliver a consistent performance, whether 15 seconds, or 1 hour long.

I have been doing corporate voice over for 15 years. Projects have included video demo's, How-To's, and product tours. I have also hosted 3000+ live podcasts and webcasts during that time. This follows on a radio career in San Francisco where I was an on air news reporter covering technology and business for CNET Radio 910am. I was also a traffic reporter for KCBS 740am.
