Highlights

I have a lusty, secure baritone that's well-suited for trusted spokesman and narrations. At the same time, I am known for accent/dialect work: British (upper class, Northern, Cockney), Yiddish (men and women), French, German, Hindi, Italian, Russian, Prairie Canadian, French-Canadian, Spanish/Mexican; USA – Alabama, North Carolina, Missouri, Brooklyn, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Texas, Maine, and more, on demand.

I may specialize in trusted spokesmen, but also do old men, crotchety men, macho men, wimpy men, and more. As a narrator or book-reader, I can assume the persona of the author, or simply and quickly serve as the authority figure on the subject.

Finally, as a movie trailer guy, I can attract viewers with a deep "LaFontaine" voice and, alternately, use a friendly dad-next-door character -- more toward my natural voice -- to buddy up to a potential viewer.

All these are on my several demos, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Service Description

I have my own studio and can deliver voice tracks immediately and with aplomb. I'm based in Seattle, so if you have access to a studio here, or an ISDN line here, please let me know and I can travel. If you require mixing, that takes a little longer, but I can do that, too.
