Los Angeles, California, US
I have an expressive young voice and I love to put it to work! I specialize in authentic, connected, and playful millennial reads.
My point of view and instrument are honed by years of curiosity, training, and professional experience - the craft of storytelling is my life's work.
Owing to my experience as a musician, audiobook narrator and producer, I'm a one-stop-shop when it comes to VO production: expect same-day turnaround and industry-standard quality.
I've worked as a fisherman in Alaska and in a Chicago law office, graduated from UCSB with degrees in environmental science and film, lived in London, and traveled the world - all of these experiences inform my gritty, deep, articulate, guy-next-door, everyman, intelligent, and storyteller sensibilities. I've always had an ear for the musicality of language and dialects!
I've loved animation and gaming since I was a tot, and I currently work with children as a private tutor in math, science, and Spanish.
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.

I have four years of theater training, including voice training with Brown University's MFA program. I currently study with active Yale faculty member and coach to Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke & Riz Ahmed, Gregory Berger-Sobeck.
I work professionally on-camera as well as onstage, and I'm a lifelong musician with an ear for dialects and rhythm. The art of storytelling has been central in my life: in my Irish-Italian family, on the fishing boats I worked on in college, among the surfers who've adopted me into their tribe, and in the books I love so dearly. My zeal for this tradition inspired me to begin acting professionally in 2015. I soon expanded into narrating and engineering audiobook projects, which were my gateways into the wild & wonderful world of voice acting!

This is one of the best narrations I've heard. Most times the voice does not match what I hear when I read but that was not the case here. Andy Cowell's voice can be as smooth and soothing as a lullaby and scary as a nightmare.Audiobook Creation Exchange / Praise for Viktor
Every character had their own sound and accent. He did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life. He even gave Viktor a gruff tone in the beginning...until they got to know each other. It is a very interesting take on the original story, but don't expect the fairytale, everything is rosy version.
Love the narrator's voice, I would gladly listen to more stories read by him. Love this author looking forward to reading and listening to more books written by her.
I need to become involved and feel the characters and need narrators to bring these characters to life! The author has definitely done that with this book. Also the narrator - absolutely in love with his voice. For me this is a keeper!
