I get it. Going green feels good. Except when it comes to choosing a voice actor. You want an amazing talent AND amazing sound quality. Search no further, I'm that hybrid; a cross breed of generation, place and skill:

I'm someone who can appeal to those who remember analog, 45's and getting up to change the channel.... and those who don't. No matter the brand or product you have to build a relationship with your buyer or audience. You need a read that can speak to both of these sets of folks with confidence and conviction as well as a dose of playfulness and spark.

✸ Midwest raised, CA grown
My brain was fully formed by the time I left Chicago for California but, being here as long
as I have, this incredible place has certainly become a part of my psyche. I give your script authenticity whether it's serious or silly and I can add an edgy, laid-back touch to your story or brand.

✸ Voice Actor, Audio Engineer
With decades of experience in the studio and on stage, I can assure quality and reliability in
recording and editing. I'm more comfortable behind a soldering iron than a curling iron and very often need to be dragged out of the the record store. My love of singing, the story of song, has helped shaped my sense of telling a concise and compelling story. I understand how the voice is a part of a larger picture. Audio can stand alone and create a rich visual texture in our imagination or it can support a visual on screen making it a more visceral experience.

I pride myself on fast turnarounds and competitive rates. I've been told by clients how easy I am to work with as I take direction well and deliver a solid product. So, don't go green! Reach out to me, the hybrid of art and audio telling you like it is.
