Highlights

"AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. . ." UNUSUALLY ENGAGING, WARM AND FRIENDLY, AUTHORITATIVE, YET CONVERSATIONAL, GRAY SOUNDS LIKE YOUR FRIEND, YOUR NEIGHBOR - YOUR DOCTOR OR MAYBE THAT COUNSELOR AT YOUR OLD HIGH SCHOOL. HOWEVER, YOU'LL ALSO FIND THAT HE'S QUITE VERSATILE - ACCENTS, CARTOONS, CHARACTERS, AND OTHER MORE STYLIZED TYPES OF DELIVERY ARE ALSO WITHIN HIS REPERTOIRE. BRINGING BOOKS AND STORIES TO LIFE GRAY GIVES THE LISTENER THE ABILITY TO "SEE" WHAT'S GOING ON. HE'S ALSO PRETTY GOOD AT TURNING ADVERTISING DIALOG INTO 'REAL' CONVERSATION - SINCE THE "ACCENT" SECTION BELOW ISN'T VERY LARGE, HERE ARE A FEW MORE. . .IN ADDITION TO THE "NATURAL" ACCENTS LISTED BELOW - GRAY CAN ALSO GIVE YOU ABOUT 3 DIFFERENT BRITISH ACCENTS (FROM OXFORD EDUCATED, TO BBC, TO COCKNEY) AND AN "OZZY" ACCENT THAT HAS FOOLED A NUMBER OF NATIVE (Website hidden)N SOUNDING ACCENTS (NOT NATIVE, BUT A BIT 'OVER THE TOP' - GOOD FOR FUN STUFF) INCLUDE - RUSSIAN (LIKE BORIS BADINOV).MEXICAN - SPEEDY (Website hidden), ITALIAN, FRENCH, EAST INDIAN, IRISH, SCOTCH, CANADIAN *(GREAT WHITE NORTH) - JAPANESE, CHINESE, WESTERN COWBOY, ED WINN (REMEMBER THE "MAD HATTER" IN ALICE IN WONDERLAND?) - MILITARY (GEORGE C SCOTT) - AND MANY MORE...EVEN IF YOU JUST WANT SOMEONE TO GIVE AN EXCITING AND FUN READ TO THE PHONE BOOK . . .GRAY'S YOUR GUY!

Experience

Voice-over is in my blood. My dad was a radio/advertising Pioneer, staring in the Lucky Strike Hit Parade, and writing such popular shows as "I Love a Mystery". He was also a VP and Creative Director at McCann Erickson back in the day.... So I grew up with it...

I've been producing advertising for radio and television since the late 70's - running my own recording studios, and voicing for radio and TV in Honolulu, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, as well as many other markets around the world.

Credentials

Education

My schools taught me little about this business - my voice-over career has been OJT from day one. Starting in radio and working for years in Audio for Video - I worked with and learned from some great voice people - and although you probably never heard of Ted Sackett, or Mique Quenzer, or Wayne Ward, or Gene Davis - these guys - and ad agency people from BBDO, Starr McCombs, DDB, Milici Valenti, O&M, and McCann - producers who could not stand that "radio sound" - and insisted that everything be "warm, conversational, friendly and genuine - "

I have a diploma from Trinity College and University, but that's not important . . .) the main thing is if you like my demo - you know who to hire!

Gabe Carter for Job #51125 Adventure game - Wynnstaff/Yaztromo

Gray is a spectacularly phenomenal actor, probably the most talented I've ever worked with. His voice has so much range, so many characters, I'm thinking of having him just do every single character in the next project. I cannot recommend him more highly.
