--- 5 Star Rated ---

A warm, rich and comforting voice.

My specialty is a confident, genuine and believable style with a warm, friendly, conversational tone.

New school Morgan Freeman meets John Slattery in Lincoln commercials, Tim Allen in Pure Michigan commercials or 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.
