About

I consider my voice to be one that inspires trust. That can make you feel comfort and ease. Its authentic and conversational. And yes, it can be deep, resonant, and terrifying, as well. I'm your man for jobs that require a straight-ahead, professional business tone, but I also love doing jobs that require something a little more humorous and quirky. Or a combination of all of these and then some. I've spent almost 20 years speaking for a living. That includes daily music-driven shows on terrestrial radio as well as voiceover work, which has been featured on everything from national television commercials to small business internet videos. I've also trained in improv comedy in the Second City style and I'm comfortable reading and interacting in a conversational manner. Bottom line: if you book me for a job, I'll do everything in my power to make sure you're 105% satisfied.

Service Overview

Voice Over

I've been doing voice work for decades, and have a long list of happy clients in my roster. To me, the best part about working in the VO field is the constant variety. I've done jobs for household name clients (Expedia, Amazon, Morgan Stanley, Home Depot) and neighborhood businesses and non-profits, and absolutely love helping bring their projects to life.

So whether you've got a 2-word tag for a commercial or a 10-hour audiobook, I hope that you'll consider adding me to the project and allowing us the chance to work together!
