Highlights

Full-time voice actor with an EXPRESSIVE, FRIENDLY, FUN, and WARM delivery.

WHY ME: The studio is named "nothing rhymes with orange" because I bring a fresh twist to your copy to create a unique and memorable performance. I'm easy to work with, take direction well, and most importantly - heed it.

Whether you're producing a commercial, documentary, product demo, internet release, training video, audiobook, or even a corporate piece to use internally or with clients, I will give you a read that brings your message to life. I can be the Young, Natural Guy Next Door; the Middle Age Training Guy; or the Friendly Old Grandpa who makes you want to rush out to buy a case of Smucker's Strawberry Jam. Ask me for a custom demo of your script and I pledge to give you a great performance.

CUSTOMER SERVICE: We all love great customer service...the kind that makes us feel truly appreciated as a customer and makes us come back again and again. I will provide you with nothing less.

When hired to voice your project, I won't rest until you are thrilled with the results. You can have confidence that your project will be performed as you envisioned it, and most projects are turned around in less than 24 hours.

THE STUDIO: Your project is recorded and mastered with professional grade equipment and software in a true studio environment. You will receive high-quality audio that represents your brand well.

Your performance "was absolutely, uniformly superb. No, make that SUPERLATIVE."

Bruce Bortz, Bancroft Press

In this ever increasing cynical (and sarcastic world) where it's "not what you know, but who you know" – especially in entertainment/publishing – every once in a blue moon, we get lucky; and I just did. That's exactly how I felt when I heard Bill Lord's audio version of The Samaritan. Lucky for me? You bet. Truth be known, I love audio books. Frank Muller was a genius, bringing to life some of the most commercially successful author's characters. Mr. Muller passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident but other audio readers continue to fill his gigantic void. Scott Brick, Roy Dotrice (Game of Thrones), Campbell Scott, John Bedford Lloyd, and George Guidall come to mind – all are great actors, with a wide range of voices.

Then there's Bill Lord, pretty much one of the new kids on the block in a very competitive market...and I LOVE HIM. I love his work! I feel incredibly lucky to have had Bill bring ALL of my characters to life, not just the key players. I may have invented these characters, but it was Bill Lord who gave them flesh and blood, and a voice – no pun intended. Male, female, young and old, even nationality, I was amazed how in touch Bill was to every scene, every character and their fate. WELL DONE, BILL LORD!!

To Bill Lord, I say: Thank you for making me look good!!! When the second book in the series (EXECUTIVE POWER) is printed, you can bet the farm I'll be hounding you to bring my characters to life...again.
