I have been a voice actor, narrator, and spokesperson for several national and international brands for many years. I have a nuanced, mature voice with a strong midrange and deep tonality, and read from a place of knowledge and experience, exuding confidence without over-emphasis. I am a storyteller with a natural, real, smooth and sometimes edgy delivery. I can also be hip, distinctive, and subtly powerful, dark, and intense. My voice has been compared to celebrities such as, Sam Elliott, Mike Rowe, Jeff Bridges, Kiefer Sutherland, David Duchovny, Tommy Lee Jones, Tim Allen, Peter Coyote, and James Spader. My voice is warm, conversational, believable, smooth, passionate, and caring. It can be inspirational and motivating. My voice is naturally deep and resonant. I come across as wise, seasoned, comfortable sounding, friendly as well as confident, enthusiastic, charming, endearing, informative, natural, and welcoming, as well as instructional, honest, professional, authoritative, corporate, powerful, melodic, and strong. I can also be a cowboy, or good 'ole country boy. I can also be sexy, dreamy, likable, trustworthy, soothing, reassuring, sincere, and natural. I deliver convincing, fresh, spiritual, approachable reads, as a Dad, uncle, or friend. My voice is credible and most of all genuine, effective, calm, pleasant, sincere, warm, compassionate, articulate, intelligent, classy, folksy, (if needed) informative, and mature. My voice has been described as subtle and powerful, with swagger, texture, gravitas, and drama. It is very deep and resonant for narrations, and soft and sexy for commercials. It is sometimes filled with attitude, but other times is rich, trusting, and welcoming. I am SAG-AFTRA financial core.
