I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Voiceover Coach
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
With over fifteen years as an industry professional, I am able to call upon a wealth of experience and accumulated knowledge to provide you with the very best product possible. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to providing voiceovers of superior quality to all of my clients, large and small. From advertisements for major corporations such as Coca Cola and McDonald's, movie trailers for worldwide release, television documentaries, Fortune 500 corporate narration, and audio-books, to promos for the local pizza place, my experience with a wide range of clients allows me to expertly create a perfect product for you, whatever your needs.
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
Now the voice of TNT's Outdoor Explosion

My regular commercial clients include Disney, ESPN, Facebook, McDonalds, Nike, Domino's Pizza, Sony, Toys 'R' Us, and dozens of others.

My corporate client list includes INVESCO, McKinsey & Company, Wal Mart, Bloomberg, Blackberry, Motorola, s.Oliver, and many more.

In August 2011, I completed recording the audio version of every word in The American Heritage Dictionary for use online and in education.

I have years of experience working for the highest profile, most demanding clients. Contact me now to see what I can do for you!
LANGUAGES

Hundreds of accents
VOICE DESCRIPTION
I have a classic, powerful, deep male voice with a generic Mid-Atlantic American accent. My voice is strong but versatile, and I can ably perform a range of tones and inflections from chipper young adult to wise old man.

Whether you are producing a commercial, a documentary, an internet release, a product demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring your script to life.

I even do a few quality impressions. If you need a voice that sounds like Sam Elliot, Morgan Freeman, Mike Rowe, Dennis Leary, or Bill Clinton, ask me for a custom demo of your script.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Hundreds of accents, dialects, impressions and characters.

I'm a donkey.



A voiceover donkey.



No, I don't have big floppy ears and a stubborn disposition, (despite what you may have heard ;) but rather an unquenchable passion for VO that keeps me working and auditioning from dawn to dusk on most days, tweaking my…

Rethinking Slating Strategies on P2P Voiceover Sites

Posted on July 17, 2012 at 8:05am 4 Comments

Ever since entering the online voiceover marketplaces like Voices.com, Voice123.com, and others, it has been my standard practice to slate my auditions with a simple name tag at the beginning.
