Warm, smart, edgy, conversational, friendly, intriguing, dark, intimate, authoritative male voice - with just a hint of gravel. If you need quiet intensity or an energized-promo, an intelligent or proud narration, a dark and foreboding trailer, a smooth or in-your-face image for your station, you are probably looking for me.
A versatile bass-baritone, I tend to appeal to the ears of both men and women, and possess an understated certainty.
Contrast that with total devotion to animated characters and video games, the creature that goes 'bump' in the night and the military commander ordering his troops to advance in the thick of battle.
All told, my experience as both performer and engineer ensure your needs will be met, time and time again.
