Highlights

I am a New York based voice actor for commercial, animation, and video game work. My natural commercial reads have been described as warm, inviting and conversational with a youthful, natural deep resonance, but am capable of more energetic comedic reads as well as serious, authoritative and informative reads depending on target audience.

For character work my natural range is low to high medium range, leading itself itself towards "heroic", "protagonist" “best friend/ boy next door” or "nerdy characters." These characters usually age from early teens to late 30's.

I also have a range of deeper tones useful for larger and older characters with strong projection and vocal presence, with larger than average builds or characters with strong sense of authority, I can add texture and rasp and smooth, calm tones that can be pushed further for more aggressive, older, classy, serious and/or confident protagonists, devilish antagonists, burly monsters or mysterious anti-heroes.

At my higher ranges I perform voices perfect for squash and stretch animation and other productions that target younger audiences. From squeaky, cute, raspy, or soft voices for expressing quirky, timid, friendly or energetic characters like young teens, small creatures or magical talking animals, I can comfortably create them all.

Accents range from neutral US American to US New England accent (NYC), US southern and African American / urban accent as well as English RP accent.

Testimonials

I could not overstate the quality of James's work, both as as a professional and as a performer. James was hired to join the cast of two separate games for Team Dogpit, and--with minimal direction--he fully embodied his characters with colorful performances that helped to set the mood of our games. His range and the believability of his creations were remarkable to the point where the production team and I eagerly awaited the delivery of his audio to listen firsthand. In addition, he was reliably prompt in answering and delivering each request, and all of his work was exactly to our specifications from his home studio which made it easy to mix.
I cannot put into words the gratitude that I and the producer of Team Dogpit have for his work. What I can say is that we look forward to bringing him in for our future productions, and we sincerely recommend him to other content creators seeking a true professional to bring their work to life.

Michael Zekas, Team Dogpit

James has done Voice Over and Graphic Design work for VGBootCamp. Everything he does has a high production value quality to it and he always gets it to us far before their deadlines. If anyone needs a voice over artist or graphic designer I highly recommend James for the job.

Calvin Lofton, CEO & President of VG Boot Camp

James is a dedicated and talented voice over actor, artist and writer. After working with him on multiple occasions I can give him only the highest of recommendations.
