Deep, rich and warm voice.
A confident, professional and believable style with a warm, friendly, conversational tone is my specialty.
New school Morgan Freeman meets Jon Hamm, John Slattery in Lincoln commercials, Tim Allen in Pure Michigan commercials or Matt Dillon in Pontiac commercials . Toss in a little Denis Leary attitude if desired.
I give my clients a motivating and authoritative voice for documentaries, narrations, YouTube videos, internal business videos, presentation videos, corporate training and educational projects for businesses or colleges/universities, plus telephone and voice messaging.
My natural and sincere vocal delivery is relaxed and calming in a non-regional North American (US) accent.
Fast turnaround times, 24 hours or less in broadcast quality for most short projects.
Fun and easy to work with ... seriously.
