Versatility is my hallmark. I am able to do several different voices for a project. While my own delivery, often described as \"Buttery, honest, authoritative, etc.\" is my bread and butter, I am able to \"punch up\" a flat page so that it pops when thrown against picture. Web vids and Elearning are a staple. A successful commercial, trailer or business video, when done well, is much like a trusted friend or advisor, whispering in your ear. In other words, advertising is word of mouth that you control.
I’ve already proven I can “move people to action” via (Website hidden) times when you’ve said to someone, “You’ve got to see this new movie...” or “There's a wonderful new restaurant you should try...” ...and, on your recommendation, they saw that movie or checked out that restaurant? I’ve proven I can do that by making a living at it, vocally for many years. Here are some of my Voice Acting styles.
