Veteran voice-over talent in radio,TV & web commercials, corporate videos & events, documentaries, videogames, audiobooks, animations, theme park shows, website, mobile app & explainers, announcing and more.
Served as Creative Director for several radio stations, writing, producing, directing and voicing many commercials and station imaging. Through the years, I used my character voice skills to do multiple voice ads. That's the sort of versatility I always offer my clients.
What sort of characters?
John Ratzenberger AKA Cliff Clavin on "Cheers" AKA Ham in "Toy Story," etc, complete with that lovable Boston accent
Elroy Jetson from "The Jetsons"
Magneto from "The X-Men"
Santa Claus (one of my most requested!)
Hal 9000 (from "2001: A Space Odyssey")
Paul Lynde (actor & voice of many classic cartoons)
Additionally, I have created dozens of character voices for many projects. Voices for big, little (and everything in between) characters. Silly animals, scary and evil men, children, old men - even women a time or two! I can be that raspy drill sergeant or coach, the bumbling, silly old man, the effeminate hairdresser, the evil mad scientist (complete with scary laughs), the cute little pig or groundhog, a cowardly lion or a bold and brave tiger!
When I'm not bringing out all of the characters, I am narrating videos, PowerPoints, slide shows and e-learning projects.
And my skills go beyond voice-over. If you need full audio production, I have over 30-years of production experience - producing radio commercials and station imaging.
If you're a voice-talent in need of demos, I offer affordable packages that include scripts, direction via Skype or in person, and complete production of the demos.
But wait! There's more! Order before midnight, and you'll get a complete set of Ginsu knives.
I also write. As Creative Director and for myself, I have written hundreds of commercials and podcasts.
Am I a 1-man band?
Absolutely not! Throughout my years in the business, I have developed relationships with many voice talents. When a project requires multiple voices, I have quite a stable of both male and female talents.
Finally, my desires. My main interests in voice-over (but not limited to) are videogames, documentary narration, and radio & TV commercials.
Let me put my skills to work for your next project, and I promise you this: you will be completely satisfied. My reputation depends on it.
