Let's get this out of the way ... YES ... back in the day ... I'd sit around Ringo's house in Hollywood and from time to time he'd play a kit and I'd play the "Ed Sullivan" kit as we traded 8's. I've been a drummer since 4th grade, was my High School Drum Major and missed most of my Sr. year touring bases and installations throughout Europe entertaining our Service Men and Women as a member of a USO Show.
With a Varied Range of Voice 'Stylings' and working with the pipes I've been given, Directors have taken me to many Award Winning Campaigns. I first look for the Decent Honest message in the copy and deliver a Believable, Thoughtful read. I may be ... Low-Key, Authoritative, Guy-Next-Door, Every-Man, Wry, Fun, To-The-Point, Warm, Conversational, Friendly, Laid Back, Warm, Clear, Serious, Reflective, Heart-Felt, Natural, Approachable, Clear, Textured, Gravel, Edgy, Sports Like, Real, Smokey, Confident, Rugged or what some may call the Bullshit Announce from the past. Not to forget Game Show, Award Show and Live Event reads
My one Read that's been hitting lately is what I call my Americana Read, it's All American.
I've also captured many-a SPORTS read including Play by Play, (NBA Anncr 6yrs) and love to do those.

I've Hosted 1/2 hour DRTV Programs. I've been in a few Movies and a hand full of Sitcom and Episodic TV shows. I've been in the Business of VOICE for some time and have a lot of great memories as a result. I'm fortunate to have worked with so many talented people who have guided my reads to Award Winning. I've Voiced All Types of Commercials, Programs, Narrations, PSAs, Movie Trailers, Network & Cable and Local Station Promos, Politicals, Motion Picture Voice Matching & ADR.
If the project has needed a spoken emotion, I've provided it.
