After 16+ years of voiceovers and on camera gigs, I feel I'm in an excellent position to serve you with voice, experience, and expertise. I offer polished skills and a bass voice that have been used to great advantage in broadcast advertising, industrials, radio news, dramatic roles (soaps, documentaries, motion pictures, and television). To bring life to your scripts, I can be one-on-one conversational, compelling, warmly persuasive, playful, and instructional, with a voice range from middle aged to senior.
