Experience

I've spent the last 25 years working as a voice actor based in both Los Angeles and New York. My roles have included everything from retail to image, product spokesperson, dialogue to animation, and character work. I also have appeared in on-camera commercials and corporate videos. I've been fortunate enough to work for most of the most recognizable and respected ad agencies throughout the U.S. (and internationally. I got my start in local radio in New Jersey and New York, and as an award-winning Freelance Reporter for the Associated Press Radio Network. I originally moved from NY to LA to work as a Writer/Producer/Director and spent time producing and directing voiceover talent before transitioning to the opposite side of the mic and camera. One of the things I'm most proud of is my ability to talk about anything on the page in front of me with a sense of knowledge and understanding, conveying even the most complex information in a manner that's always accessible. My reads are best described as authoritative, yet approachable. Another thing is having the ability to get things right the first time and get them done fast in hopes of helping the producer achieve the performance they desire, delivered on time and under budget. I encourage you to listen to my demos to get the full flavor of the type of performance I can bring to your product or service. Thanks for listening!
