My voice has been described as trusting and confident. Possessing a vocal range from Baritone to Tenor, I am able to be anything for any project. My styles include, but are not limited to playful, amusing, confident, menacing, energetic, soothing and even Kermit the Frog. From characters to dramatic readings, commercials to that reassuring voice on the other end of the phone, you can be sure that your project will get the attention and quality it deserves.
