Announcer, Bright, Sharp, Clean, Exceptional Hard Sell, Character, Conversational.
I try to be versatile to satisfy a clients needs if I can.
My specialties are in strong authoritative deliveries such as for automotive ads, movie or television promotional trailers, announcer and documentaries. My voice is versatile enough to go from deep and foreboding to bright and cheery as well as over the top outlandish characters. I learned versatility through necessity when I became a copy writer and producer for a radio station THAT HAD NO STAFF! So I learned quickly how to stretch my voice and deliver different styles in order to give our commercial breaks a versatile sound since it was all me back to back to back! And of course it being radio, how to do it all in a fast turnaround!
I am dedicated to CUSTOMER SERVICE, because I want to make sure you get exactly what you need from me and that means taking voice direction with ease. I come from a producer's background so I know what it means when you have a certain "sound or delivery" in your head and you are trying to pull it from a voice artist so I have learned to be able to be flexible and versatile, and "listen".
And as an added bonus, I am recognized from my stint on a recent episode of "The Hungry Games" on the Food Network!

I have over 24 years in radio and television commercial voice overs and production, and 10 years independently with my own voice production company DLS VOICE PRODUCTIONS which I run with my wife Michelle, who is exceptionally talented. Together we can give you the male/female combo that is so hard to come by as we have worked together closely for many years.
We have both worked in radio and in highly demanding production departments in copywriting and producing as well as with television production, so we are well versed in deadlines and quick turnarounds.
I have been heard nationally and in Alaska on mostly toll free ads such as for Smoke Free, Tax Debt Relief, Student Debt Relief, and as well as tv and radio ads for Planet Fitness.

It never stops. I have been fortunate to have had a successful radio career in which I have won numerous awards in voice production and writing which lead to being a 2 time New York State Broadcasters Association Award Winner for Outstanding Radio Commercial and winner of over 30 ADDY Awards, as well as being a 2 time finalist for the New York A.I.R. Awards.
