My natural baritone range voice lends itself particularly well to warm, friendly, trustworthy types of soft-sells and narrations and I can perform everything from bright & energetic to sad & depressed. I come across as intelligent and caring, but can switch easily to angry and perturbed. I am a directable voiceover talent and can work with you to provide the link between your product or information and the client.

During what I have been told is a "portfolio career", I have done retail sales, presentations, phone support and sales, training and teaching. This background has taught me to speak clearly and correctly in a manner and tone that inspires believability and confidence in the information presented. My voice is a sales and teaching tool and I know how to use it to get my, or your, point across.
My voiceover portfolio includes work for (Website hidden), Inteliphone, America Field Services, Interactive Voices, Education Northwest, New Pace Productions and Malbon Bros Farms.
I originally studied at the Aliso Creek Voiceover Workshop under the direction of William Williams. Since then I have attended numerous workshops, the most recent being on The Art of Narration, presented by Nick Omana and JV Martin at TalkShopLA.
Over the past 30 years I have been involved mostly in the jewelry industry in various positions from phone sales and support, to retail sales at many levels, to finally teaching at the Gemological Institute of America. In all of these positions I've used my voice to be convincing, friendly, instructional, concerned, or whatever else it took to help the client come to a level of understanding and, in many cases, to a buying decision. I can apply the same talents to fit your needs.
