other people have described my voice as deep, rich, occasionally booming, soothing, both authoritative and meek (depending on what I'm doing), funny and serious, sarcastic, genuine, curious and my favorite compliment I've ever received about my voice is that "it's a voice you want to listen to."

I"m a DePaul university communications major grad with a focus in radio, tv, and film production(B.A.)/college radio station host. I did a year of improv training at second city (A through E), as well as a few writing classes at the annoyance and IO. I"m currently the co-host of a podcast focused on one of mine, and my 2 close friends', favorite animated show (Avatar the Last Air Aender). if it matters the podcast is called "The Earth Kingdom Prairie Home Companion". Though only one season has been posted on itunes we're almost done recording all 3 seasons and my recording skills have gotten MUCH better than when we started. Plus, generally speaking, I'm that guy who always watched something on tv/in movies and then tried to imitate it to his friends.
I graduated from Depaul University with a BA in Communications focusing on radio tv and film production, i also ran a campus radio show for 3 years. I took a year of classes at Second City in Chicago (A through E), as well some writing classes at the annoyance theater and IO. I co-host a podcast with two close friends (which focuses on a cartoon, A:TLA, full of amazing voice performances.).

To most everything i do I bring a lot of enthusiasm and attention to details as well as a big intellectual appetite for this particular subject matter. I'm passionate about voice over work both as a fan of tv/movies/podcasts/videogames/audiobooks and also as someone who badly wants to participate in it (ever since 7th grade when my voice dropped and i couldn't be in chorus because they didn't have any Bass parts.). I am professional, work very well with others as part of a team and i take the work seriously but i rarely, if ever, take myself seriously. And lastly, i've been told on more than one occasion that my voice is memorable, which is a big plus in the world of advertising and acting.
