Friendly and comforting for commercials,
Gravelly and bombastic for announcer,
Velvety and sexy for radio,
Rich and articulate for narrations,
Sophisticated baritone for presentations.
I have a warm, soothing baritone with an incredibly dynamic pitch perfect for story-telling, assuring clients, sounding authoritative, and creating zany character voices. My voice has been described as energetic and fun, serious and sophisticated, gruff and sexy, and even "like chocolate." I can sound like a youthful tech guy, or drop into a low register to go older and deeper. I've also got an array of dialects, including British, Irish, and all American Regionalisms, including Southern. I've been called in to audition for several national commercials, including Sonic, McDonald's, and Kellogg's.
