Ever wonder what it would be like to spend some time trapped in traffic with Elmo, Dr. Claw, that guy from the movie trailers, Mario, and Arnold Schwarzenegger? No? Neither did my fiance, but she's had the joy of experiencing that on a daily basis just by hanging out with me.

I'm not a impressionist, but I do have a wide vocal range, and I'd like to share that with you. Anything from the squeaky high comfort of what you'd imagine your teddy bear to sound like to the gutterly low growl of a 40 ft tall monster: it's all in one package. My everyday speaking voice is baritone in timbre and has been called sultry, smooth, and powerful (and NOT just by my mom).

In short, pitch an idea to me, and I'll find the pitch to meet your needs.

I've been making movies since I was in middle school, and doing voiceover work has been a part of that process for me since the beginning.

During my time at school, I performed in my own radio show that featured live radio dramas, comedy, and strange musical performances.

More recently, I've been editing reality TV shows for the likes of TNT, A&E, Discovery and TLC. I have performed Temp VO that serves as a placeholder until thousands of dollars are (aptly) paid to a professional, and I've worked that aforementioned VO into the show for reality TV gold.

All the while, I've been acting and annoying my loved ones with my wide variety of voices.
