About

Overview

I consider my voice to be one that inspires trust. That can make you feel comfort and ease. Its authentic and conversational. And yes, it can be deep, resonant, and terrifying, as well. I'm your man for jobs that require a straight-ahead, professional business tone, but I also love doing jobs that require something a little more humorous and quirky. Or a combination of all of these and then some. I've spent almost 20 years speaking for a living. That includes daily music-driven shows on terrestrial radio as well as voiceover work, which has been featured on everything from national television commercials to small business internet videos.
I've also trained in improv comedy in the Second City style and I'm comfortable reading and interacting in a conversational manner.
Bottom line: if you book me for a job, I'll do everything in my power to make sure you're 105% satisfied.

Experience

I've worked on an incredible variety of projects.

When it comes to straight-forward, professional business reads, I like to think of myself as one of those rare voice actors who can deliver dry financial, medical, or insurance-related information in a conversational manner. Before I read, I really try to understand the information and then relay it as a teacher would to a classroom of interested and engaged students.

The projects I feel best about are the projects that require a human connection in the read. The acting and emotion needed to convey deep thoughts about universal human subject matter. Some of my happiest clients were for projects that had me discussing fatherhood, dog ownership, and hospice care.

My credits include national television commercials. Local TV commercials. National radio commercials. Regional radio commercials. Local radio commercials. Internet preroll ads. Client website commercials. Whiteboard explainer videos. Fortune 50 companies. Large companies. Small companies. Mom and pop companies. Big-name film festival submissions. Student films. IVR and Voice Mail greetings. And once, bringing an anthropomorphic hockey puck to life.

I love everything about the craft of voice acting. Got a project? I'd love to work on it with you.
