Chris holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from the University of Arizona. He has been doing voiceover professionally for six years, getting his start in theatrical pre-show announcements before getting picked up by commercial, animation, videogame and audiobook contracts. In 2015 he founded his own studio from which he works: Cricket Sound.
Another of his passions is comedy, and he looks to incorporate approachable humor when possible in his product. He brings tremendous passion and joy to his work but is fiercely competitive in the market.
Chris' resonant, soothing narrations as well as broad-ranged character voices make him ideal for projects ranging from commercials and documentaries to animation and videogame characters.
