A slam-dunk 'safe' casting choice. Long and short form narration in multimedia, corporate, broadcast and documentary styles. Ask for that vintage newsreel announcer sound. Smile and style for web & broadcast with blunt-punch gravitas on tap, and poetry is a specialty!Smooth wide-ranging solid adult male persona or character, excellent session consistency, directability, and technical quality. New-sounding with dial-in courtliness. 'Radio guy' to 'guy next door' to giant mecha to Shakespearian space slug if you need that. Illuminating technical narrator with real technical experience in many fields. Able to finesse script phrasing for you on the fly if needed for better intimacy with the ear. I don't mess around with your audio engineering. In my auditions, I nail published ATSC A/85, EBU R128, TR-B32 LKFS for peaking and loudness range broadcast specs. If you're on a budget I can include licensed music. Ask!Tags & DescriptorsMellifluous natural male voice, clear & neutral, ideal for broadcast use. Mid-atlantic for voiceover. Cultured American to British-ish. Film noir leads and announcers, contemporary or classic radio announcers, accents.

Starting with live studio TV broadcasts in 1974, moving to on-air in radio & TV commercials, and longer-form projects including educational ESL radio for ACCESS Alberta, The Knowledge Network, the TV series "Golf Buddies", "Wings over Canada" and innumerable commissions including collaboration with award-winning filmmakers Michael Saunders and on Discovery's Channel's award-winning "Falconry" by Jacek Strek -- all have demonstrated my value to the producer.
Experienced in the studio, with 'castability' and 'direct-ability' for session consistency, topped with a geek's comprehension. A great voice and a great choice for your short and long-form projects.
