HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
- I am married with 3 kids. Only one left at home. I built my own studio into the house I built with my brothers 8 years ago. I have been voice acting for over 25 years now. Voice acting to me really means you can "assume the position" in studio. If some ridiculous cues are thrown at you in studio - IE - Can you go 10% faster but relax the read and engage us with the words" you might actually know how to do it. I do love getting into studios but nowadays you need to make friends in other ways... my home studio is my best friend now. I have done live radio, live tv, arena announcing, high energy ads and long and laborious technical scripts. I am looking forward to doing some audiobooks this year (personal goal) I work in both English and French and I have a fairly exacting ear and eye in regard to scripts. I take direction well and am most engaged when my opinion is considered...

I am an English voice but I grew up in a bilingual household. I just spent the last 3 years in Montreal studios which really helped me get better at the language. I would not say I am 100% bilingual but if I take a few runs at a French script I can nail it every time. I can also take direction in French very well as I understand the subtleties.
-I have the stamina and gravitas to charge confidently through a massive technical script that needs confidence and conviction but not a sell.
-I can be direct and inviting and sell you a car when you really should be riding a bike.
-There is also the cozy and warm invitation to join the great outdoors supported by HD visuals with my voice nestled deep in the center of a rich symphonic bed. I love a satisfying documentary read.
-My voice can also be a dark instrument of doom when a villain needs a little descriptive support or a Sports show is looking for aggressive excitement.
-I can also provide the engaging bounce and friendly interest in an arid dry script on accountancy.
