About

I’m a professional voice talent with a friendly, trustworthy, confident middle-aged male voice with a neutral North American accent. I sound professional but approachable, reassuring your listeners that your idea or product is understandable and helpful. My vocal style instantly connects with listeners, puts them at ease, and gains their trust.

My style is ideal for branding videos, corporate communications, documentaries, explainer videos, e-learning, ESL narration, human resources training, medical narration, museum narration, non-profit marketing, product marketing, podcasts, public service announcements, radio imaging, technical training, travel & tourism, whiteboard animation, website & app demos, YouTube videos, and more.

For commercials, I voice the script in a natural tone that introduces your product or service and convinces customers it will solve a problem for them. I'm not pushy, I just help make the connection between what you do and what your customers need.

For explainers and e-learning, I can take something complicated and make it make sense, so the light bulb goes up over the listener and they say, "I get it!" I take technical, medical, and legal terminology and make it sound clear and understandable. I love explaining things as though I'm sitting across from the listener, telling them, "This is interesting, and it's actually quite simple!"

For documentaries, I provide narration that is strong and builds a narrative without sounding melodramatic. Documentaries are my favorite type of program to watch, and I have a passion for this way of telling stories—especially history, nature, and science.

For audiobooks, I read clearly, steadily, and with intrigue, building the story and drawing the listener in, page after page, chapter after chapter. My specialties are biography, history, sports, science, and other forms of nonfiction.

For other types of voiceovers, my style is ... whatever you need! My voice is versatile and can work for a wide variety of projects, lifting the words off the page and helping them come to life.

Customer Service

I’ve served a wide range of clients in a range of fields as diverse as business, education, government, the legal profession, media production companies, non-profit organizations, publishing, technical writing, the theatre, and more.

I have a track record of satisfied clients by delivering work that is fast, professional, and attentive to their needs.

It starts in my professional studio, carefully designed to produce crystal clear sound. My delivery is meticulous; I give each word the articulation and emphasis it needs to get your message across. I'm relentless in getting it right, the way you want it. I know that when you hire me for a project, it's not about me, it's about you, your idea, your words, and, above all, your listeners. I don’t rest until you’re satisfied that I’ve served your script and your audience as well as I could.

Live Direction

I love taking live direction! It’s the best way for me to know how you want your words to sound and make them sound that way. I can connect with you from my studio via phone patch, Skype, SourceConnect, or ipDTL.

Vision

Ultimately, your project—whatever type of project it is—is really about telling a story, and inviting your listeners to hear themselves in that story. I know that and I reflect that in my work.
