30 + years in voiceovers. Jim has a read that can be sincere, dramatic, biting, hard sell, or easy. There are few voiceover people that can offer such a wide variety of reads. Jim has contributed to major US TV networks, HBO, Disney, NFL, and many other prime outlets, but offers the same care and attention to the smallest mom and pop companies needing a professional branding and imaging voice.

Working with Jim was an excellent experience! We loved his voice over that will accompany a new product introduction animated video. Jim was great to work with, very professional yet warm and friendly and the turn around time was immediate. 5 stars plus!

Read the comments in my reviews to quickly understand that I strive for a perfect read done as quickly as my clients need it. Anything less than a five star review would be unacceptable to me. Get ready for an exceptional voice over experience.
