Wide range of voices from warm and sultry to cute and bubbly. Natural "middle of the road" dialect. Clear, confident, and knowledgeable delivery for professional presentations, narrations and "On-Hold" systems. Infectious and fun for "hard sell" commercials. Sincere and trustworthy for "soft/medium sell" commercials. Other regional American accents include Northeastern & Southeastern United States (ie., Boston, NY, Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, Texas). Character voices include generic cartoon voices, as well as recognizable characters & celebrities (ie., Rocky & Bullwinkle, Fran Drescher, Ethel Merman, etc.).

Several years of large market radio experience. Responsibilities included on-air endorsements, copywriting, voicing, and production. Was also responsible for live emcee appearances for local and regional clients, as well as host for many local and regional festivals. Off-camera cable spots for Charter Communications.
Through radio I developed relationships with clients who would eventually request my copywriting, voice and production work almost exclusively. This turned into freelance voice-over work, in addition to my production load with the radio station.
Prior to my radio experience, I toured for four years as a singer with a jazz group - singing the songs of the great torch singers and big band vocalists of the 30's, 40's & 50's and a few new jazz favorites. (ie., Ella Fitgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson, Peggy Lee, Patti Page, Kaye Starr, Sinatra, Diane Schuur, Natalie Cole, Diana Krall).
I have over 20 years of musical training and performance experience. The last 14 of which have been spent as a professional musician along the eastern seaboard of the United States.
I joined the United States Navy Band in 2005. In 2007 I began to re-establish my voice-over studio in order to supplement my income. Not to mention, I love the whole creative process behind voice-over work and hope to continue beyond my retirement from the U.S. Navy.
