VOICE DESCRIPTION
My voice is energetic and capable of a wide range of ages: a high-head voice that can be young teenagers (tweens) that is approximately the high-tenor singing range all the way to a forceful baritone to give financial institutions the sense of gravitas and trust. Humorous tones can be added from a slapstick over-the-top style of cartoon voice to the very straight-forward dry wit.
Additionally, I can either sound like the average man on the street or the warm, educated, friendly guy next door.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
I have performed most British Isles accents (Scottish, Proper British, London common, Irish) as well as Australian. Additionally, I do German, French and Russian accents as well as an English-accented gentleman from India. Closer to stateside, I also do most regional U.S. accents Southern, West coast, Midwest and Atlantic Northeast.

Characterizations include radio hosts of various eras (Old time-radio, current NPR-type, man-on-the- street interviewer) and functions (sports announcer, play-by-play commentator)

Lantern-jawed heroes, surfer dudes, upper-muckity snobs, down home hicks, mad scientists as well as loyal sidekicks are all in my stable of characters. Approximated characters are also available; someone who is “kind of like” a character. For example, if you’d like someone who sounds similar to Alfred Hitchock, he’s there, too.
