Experience

I began my commercial career while still in high school, working on campaign ads for a state senatorial candidate. Over the next few years I worked on a lot of political campaign commercials and Public Service Announcement campaigns both on camera and behind the scenes in post-production. During my college years I worked at a series of radio stations doing station imaging, interviews and on-air DJ work. This was in the days when we were still "spinning vinyl" and my early radio gigs spanned the transition from obnoxious announcer DJ style that was popular from the 1950w through the late 70s, to the more laid back conversational style that eventually (and thankfully) became the norm for FM radio stations.

Upon moving to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s I realized that in order to be competitive in this market I needed to develop my voice acting skills. I learned that understanding story development and character motivation was crucial to delivering a believable performance, whether I was auditioning for a commercial spot, an e-learning course or an explainer video.

Testimonials

Bill was a pleasure to work with. We worked on a commercial video with Bill at a studio in Burbank with our marketing executive, our attorney and a director. Everyone had different direction for the poor guy but Bill was unflappable. It was evident he had done this before! We appreciated his professionalism and his willingness to take direction from multiple stakeholders. We will absolutely reach out to him for our next project.
