Recently he narrated a Documentary on white Abolitionist John Brown called Madman or Martyr His last animation feature found Ed portraying five different characters. The Littlest Angel where he was paired with Ron Perlman is destined to become a children's classic. His most recent stage role was as Ghost of Jacob Marley in A Christmas Carol. The Musical, and involved cable work that had him literally flying more than forty five feet above the stage.

Experience

I have been the National voice for Lincoln Motor Cars, and scores of other National accounts including Coca Cola, Minute Maid, Chevrolet, KFC, Busch Beer, Future Shop in Canada, Samsung etc. But voice matching is my specialty, as I am an impressionist. If there is an announce style you wish to ape or cop from, be it Donald Trump, Bryan Cranston, Gary Owens, Don Lafontaine, or others, I am a master mimic, and parody is my specialty. Lately I get a lot of requests for Donald Trump, Morgan Freeman, Alec Baldwin, Clint Eastwood, Michael Caine,, John Travolta, etc. But if you give me a heads up, I can dial in anyone from the NFL Football's late, great John Facenda to John Madden. It is my gift, and I love to use it. I am a voice actor. Impressions a specialty.

Ed has the kind of voice you want to curl up into a ball and have delivered on a velvet platter directly into your ears. It also doesn't hurt that he is extremely professional, quick to respond, and a technical wiz. Any time you work with people this good it makes you excited about your job again, and that is no easy feat. Thanks Ed!

Ed is the absolute best – he turned this around incredibly quickly, yet still somehow gave it so much love and attention down to every detail. The sound quality of the file was very high and all around extremely professional. I will definitely be working with him again!
