Warm, Smooth, Unique and Professional... From a family of broadcasters, I have a traditional "news anchor" style of voice and delivery. My voice has a natural resonance, clear and friendly without being too deep or smoky. My specialties include professional voiceover for corporate videos and presentations, radio and television advertisements, audio for web video, and podcasts. I also provide services for IVR, phone systems, voicemail, and on-hold messages.
In addition to voice skills, my studio is capable of editing and producing finished audio tracks, including those recorded elsewhere and sent to me for final mix and master. I offer a variety of post-production options in a variety of formats.

My fascination with broadcasting began when I was six or seven years old, visiting my father's television studio (he was a news anchor, producer, news director, and station director for a variety of affiliate stations from the 1970's-1990's). I would sit in the edit booths and watch producers assemble spots for the evening news, which would then go to the reports to add voice. By the time I was 11, I had started producing my own "newscasts" at home using a betamax camera and one of my father's old radio microphones.
As I came of age, I convinced my father to let me do some work for the station. I helped run field audio for NBC's coverage of local college football games, in addition to starring in a handful of television commercials for sports teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs. By college, I assembled my own recording studio, and started dabbling in audio editing and production.
It wasn't until 2007 when, prompted by my wife, I turned my attention to voice acting and producing. I already had the skills from 12 years of audio production to edit and assemble the spots, and I was blessed to inherit "the voice" from my father and grandfather.
As I have also spent a number of years in the business world, I have expertise in voicing elaborate scripts for those in the banking and finance business. Some of my primary clients include various banks, mortgage firms, and investment companies.
I have lived in Los Angeles, upstate New York, Tennessee, and Kansas City, and as such don't tend to have a dominant accent. I can stretch a drawl when required, although my natural speech pattern tends to be rather universal with just a slight midwestern touch.
