Highlights

I have a very natural, warm, sound that can go wry, offbeat, edgy or sexy.

I am a very flexible voice actor with a real command of the craft who's game to try anything.

I can add a slight rasp or be clear as a bell.
I can go very young, middle age or character senior.
I can be funny or serious as a heart attack.
I have numerous character and cartoon voices.
I really enjoy doing "couple" voice work.

Along with being a voice talent, I am also an accomplished radio/promo writer/producer [clients include MTV, Nickelodeon, American Express] - I can write copy from scratch, create campaigns or just punch up copy for laughs or for better scanning.

I can easily direct myself and others and get professional performances.

An award-winning independent filmmaker as well, I like to edit complex audio jobs in Final Cut Pro. I have an extensive sound effects library and am known for my ability to subtly layer effects.
