I've worked as a professional voice talent since 1986, specializing in TV ads. From automotive dealerships to jewelry stores, from retail to direct response, I've done them all many times over.
As the lead in-house voice announcer for Comcast Spotlight in southeastern Michigan (Phone hidden)), I performed on more than a thousand promos including those for cable networks like ESPN, Lifetime, MTV, HBO and SHOWTIME. But wait...there's more: My voice work experience extends to industrial projects, municipality programming, website instruction, phone messaging, even feature-length dramatic film.

I most often employ a warm, authoritative tone for commercial and instructional voice-overs, but can easily make the "read" more conversational if requested. I can provide a deeper cadence for dramatic narration or a unique character voice for more creative copy.
Characterizations include Midwestern, rural, East Coast and British accents (including BBC-style, Cockney, Northern England). Other character voice types include sinister, weasely, nervous, effete, pompous, romantic, "old time radio serial" bombast, "nitro-burning funny cars" crazed.
