I know there are lots of voice guys out there. Many very talented, some less expensive. What sets me apart is that I really understand what you're looking for! You want a voice actor with the artistic ability to give your script life...and the business savvy to do that quickly, maintain top quality, and subscribe to high professional standards. I do my best to earn trusting, long term relationships with each and every one of my clients.
The best training I had was owning and operating a full service studio for a long time. As an engineer, I had the chance to watch client directors interact with talents. I saw great results and, more important, I saw less than great results. It impressed on me the importance of listening to what you want...and then giving it to you! Pretty simple huh? I'm not going to go rogue on you! I'll do my best to give you exactly what you're looking for!

I'm a full time voice....so really fast!
For voice recording I've got a Gentner direct phone patch so you can listen in and give me your direction. After that the files can be emailed or longer length files can be loaded on an ftp service. I do have a music library and extensive sound effects collection and many years of complete production experience. Plus I've got a few friends who do voice work so if you need multiple voices I can help with that too.
