You may think, "I've heard that voice before..." and yes, you have! I have been fortunate to voice commercials for major national brands such as Drivetime, Capitol Records, McDonald's, Target, US Bank, Korean Air, and have voiced promos for several cable TV channels, as well as in-show narration for shows on National Geographic Channel. Whether my client is big or small, I never rest until they are thrilled with the results. I look forward to treating YOU like the big client you ARE.
In advertising and in storytelling, TRUTH is key. I endeavor to find that truth in your copy, and speak from that place of authenticity, to help your brand build trust with your audience. My history as a songwriter and session musician makes me uniquely suited to voice your project, for I bring a versatility, a poet's sensitivity, and a musician's timing into the booth. I am well-traveled, a natural storyteller, and have a keen ear for accents. I have been told that my distinctive gravelly baritone sounds both experienced and youthful, and can swing from inviting to commanding, from intimate to authoritative, from believable to ironic, and from playful to downright sexy. Whether you need an announcer with genuine gravitas for an anthemic piece, or a conversational guy-next-door, I've got you covered. Need your script said with a wink? I can do that. Need it delivered straight head and matter-of-fact? I can do that too. Trained in narration, television promo, movie trailer, and commercial voice over from the most sought after and respected coaches in Los Angeles, I never stop learning, and never stop working, to make it sound just right for clients like you.
