Don’t forget to add me to your "FAVORITES" list so you can find me the next time you need me! I have a classic, powerful, deep male voice with a generic American accent. While extremely versatile, I am known for my quirky abilities, I enjoy the authoritative, knowledgeable reads, such as commercials for financial institutions, movie trailers, documentaries, and corporate narration. My voice is strong, and I can comfortably perform a range of tones and inflections from chipper adult to wise old man. Are you looking for a specific voice type, but not sure how to describe it? Here are some ideas that will help. I can professionally perform any of the following voice types!

"Ed's talent, not my coaching, came first. Then, I tried to help him with career advice. He is truly a fine voice actor and one whom you should use as often as possible. He also is a wonderful person."Bettye Zoller [Voice Coach]
“I was talking to my daughter about this project, and she said to get Morgan Freeman. I looked into that, but Mr. Freeman was a little outside of my financial reach ... so I got Ed. Ed is a very gifted man. I don't know him that well to understand if he really appreciates the depth and breadth of this abilities, but they are truly phenomenal. I've listened to dozens of voice over professionals over the past few weeks, and I know that that the right voice depends on the purpose and use of the recording. But for what I do, no one is better than Ed. I will definitely be calling on him again. If you need a powerful message, with strong inflection and a warm style that draws you in, Ed's the guy. ... and Rachael, I appreciate your admiration for Mr. Freeman, but I'm glad I went with Ed.” —TinderSparkPath Choices
