Ralph's clients are varied and include voicing for the NHL's Buffalo Sabres (2016/17 is his ninth season handling imaging on MSG-TV) and the NFL's Buffalo Bills (for the 2008 - 2011 seasons on the "Thurman Thomas Show" with game recaps, sponsor reads and flashback segments). The 2016/17 season also marks Ralph's tenth season of voicing the promos for WHL hockey games on Shaw TV in Canada.
For ten years, Ralph has been the “go to” voice for Legal Media, Inc., based in Houston, Texas. They have been on the winning side of over $20 billion dollars in verdicts, summary judgments and successful settlements for their clients and his voice has been used in many technology tutorials that go to court.
Longer narration projects like corporate videos, eLearning modules and online tutorials make up Ralph's niche market. From 2010 - 2016, Ralph was the voice for training materials for NAPA AutoCare shop owners. For seven years, Ralph also provided regular content for a New York based company that provides internationally recognized training and education for banks, credit unions and money services businesses.
Previously, he served as the smooth narrator for "On The Adventure Trail", a big game hunting TV show airing 10 times a week on The Sportsman Channel & Wild TV.

"Ralph really has the voice...and it's a very adaptable one. I recently returned with some powerful documentary footage from Tanzania and Ralph read my script with the required care and compassion. I then turned to him to voice our topical opens for the Buffalo Sabres broadcasts on MSG...and his energy and punch is exactly what we were looking for. We are thrilled to be working with Ralph...who REALLY has the voice!"
