I am a male in my 30s, with a wide dramatic range from flippant comedy to stoic drama with an equally broad vocal range. I am a classically trained lyric baritone, and I excel at several accents including British English, Southern American, Midwest, New England (various), French, Russian, and German. I can create and voice characters that are suited to any material, drawing audiences in with energetic, emotional, and thoughtful performances.
