About

A strong, bold, dynamic voice can bring your idea to life.
THAT'S WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU!
If there's one thing I hear from everyone I work with it's, Wow, your voice really resonates with me. If having someone else tell your story, you need to have someone who really understands what you're trying to say and do their best to 'get into your head'. That is what I do.

While this may sound great, I am all about business. Hey, you're busy and you need someone who can deliver excellent quality THE FIRST TIME. I want to BRING YOUR IDEAS TO LIFE, no matter if it's a five second phone message or a 30 second commercial. I've been all over the voice over spectrum from light and conversational, to edgy and in-your-face. Taking direction is key for me, so you tell me how you want it to sound, and I'll make it happen.

Every client is treated as a PARTNER on this journey. You've got deadlines to meet, so I always strive for a 24 HOUR TURNAROUND time or less if needed. My rates are competitive and, oh yeah, did I mention I was a Audio Engineer in the radio industry for over 15 years? That means you'll get CLEAN, POLISHED, PROFESSIONAL AUDIO for every project using the best gear available. I want to be your partner for the long term, so I'll always go the extra mile to make you happy.

Some highlights:
- I was the national voice of Alarm Force in 2014-15 on both radio and TV spots. I also produced those spots because I am a career audio producer.
- I was the super hyper, macho voice for Air Hogs/Spinmaster Toys in 2017
- I have narrated documentaries and e-learning modules
- I was used in a national Budweiser commercial last year as the sports announcer voice (touchdown!!)
- Other clients include SummerHill Media, Thinkmojo, Infomercials Inc, Loblaws Canada and many more
