I am the conversational, guy-next-door voice. Someone who really sounds like "everyman," but can also be the "announcer." I can be energetic and exciting for car ads, warm and caring for PSA's, conversational for family products, and professional for instructional spots. I also have extensive experience with reading for audio books, and I can add characterization to my reads. My wry sense of humor easily comes through in ads that need that (Website hidden) you are looking for a voice with lots of personality, motivation, and emotion, you've found it!!!
I have a smooth, clear, professional delivery for narrations, web site direction, voice mail directories, and audio books.

It all started in the 80's when I was studying to be a radio superstar. While studying I was able to record and produce hundreds of on-air spots for local businesses and PSA's. I also read several live spots on-air with and without music beds. I have produced and voiced station promos, newscasts, and interview programs. I have hosted talk programs and hosted a regular air shift on KGRB radio in Glendora, CA.
I have used my extensive radio background in my current role as an English teacher. Knowledge of delivery, tone, and pace have only enhanced my effectiveness. I also used my experience to record several books on tape for student and classroom use. I have also narrated several presentations for schools and hosted awards programs for no charge to benefit the programs I support.
