My DEMOS feature immense GIANT VOICES, done without filters. Tough WARRIOR VOICES, all natural. MYTHIC HEROES with gravitas. Humorous ANIMAL VOICES, filled with character and COMEDY. LIGHT ETHNIC MALE VOICES available in numerous ACCENTS. OLD MEN VOICES, all different. EVIL VILLAINS that really do sound evil. Even JAZZ WHISTLING BIRDS. My work can add DEPTH and POWER to characters in VIDEOGAMES, CARTOONS and FILM. I've spent three decades honing these skills as an award-winning master storyteller. As an edited, published author and recording artist, I know what it is to take direction and have always enjoyed it. You'll find me easygoing, flexible and fun to work with and I'll deliver you a product you'll love!
