Highlights

I have a full-bodied, warm, rich voice, with spot-on, crystal clear articulation. I'm able to do many different types of voices, including animation/video game characters (young children, adults, elderly adults, heroes warlords, monsters, all in various dialects and character voices).

As an FCC-licensed broadcaster, formerly a newscaster with an ABC affiliate, my cold reading abilities are outstanding, enabling me to easily handle virtually any copy at first sight. I'm also known for my somewhat wry, edgy, sharp sense of humor and for the ability to instantly segue from wacky and fun to deep, smooth and professional, as needed.

Experience

I began doing voiceover work professionally in the late 1970's, as the voice of Jimmy Thudpucker, in the Academy Award-nominated; animated film, "A Doonesbury Special." The film also won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

In the 1990's, I began doing commercial spots for various companies and individuals, which were used on various radio stations, including KOZT and KDAC, where I was employed as a newscaster; on-air, live interviewer; D.J. and the host of a call-in show.
