Service Overview

Voice Over

When you work with me, you'll have peace of mind that your project will be completed smoothly, and in a timely fashion. I've voiced over 8,000 projects, including commercials, eLearning, Whiteboard animation videos, corporate narration and training, industrials, guided meditations and sleep stories, & many more!

My voice has been described as friendly, easygoing, smart, fun, personable, warm, conversational, engaging, genuine, authentic, believable, guy-next-door, educational, and relatable. I'm also able to provide high energy, hard sell Announcer voices...whether it's for a sporting event, an automotive spot, or anything else requiring a big voice.

I am consistently cast for a wide range of age requirements, primarily male teens, 20's, 30's, & 40's.

When I'm not recording or narrating, I am also a New York Times-featured sports broadcaster, and serve as the Spring Training radio play-by-play broadcast voice of the Oakland Athletics.
