I have a deeper speaking voice by nature, but I can vary my range quite a bit. It is smooth, warm, and calming by nature, but can easily become very authoritative and firm when necessary. I can easily go from being slower paced and relatively monotone (think nature documentary), to something as wild as a teenage super hero carrot cartoon character (think dramatic and emotional). My reading is exceptional, and usually doesn't require very many takes at all, even though I tend to be a perfectionist.

I have been working in radio and broadcasting for over a decade. I have done both scripted and improv voice overs for commercials, promos, spots, parodies, comedy skits, intros, outros, podcasts, PSAs, and script reading, both prerecorded and live for many channels on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. I also do voice over work for Arthur/Earfully Media, Linguix Media, and am currently in the second round of auditions for a new cartoon airing in London. I have a home studio with professional recording and editing hard and software.
I have a BS in Business and a minor in broadcasting.

I am a profession from beginning to end. I take this work very seriously (even if my voice may sound otherwise on occasion). This is what I love, and what I take pride in. I strive to do my bet so that the product I create is the best possible example of my talent and dedication. If given the chance, I promise I won't disappoint you.
