Warm, authoritative, directable, confident, clear, flexible, and believable. Not to mention humble. A voice with some weight, but which still requires only one seat on most commercial aircraft. Some people think I sound like Mike Rowe. Or John Tesh. If you're looking for "the guy next door" or Morgan Freeman, I do a perfect imitation of the guy next door to Morgan Freeman. His name is Stu.

One of the hardest qualities to find in a computer based training voice talent is someone that narrates like they know the subject matter.
