Persistence and Consistence!

Profile Information

Voice Actor
I've been working in and around radio/VO since 1987. Some production, on air talent, some VO. Exclusively VO since 2006

A few details: I'm an avid scuba diver, can cook, have a ridiculous collection of Lava Lamps, (I'm up to 35!), like auto racing, love football, can juggle, play a little guitar, and have two cats. I once saved a village from a swarm of fire ants armed only with a canteen and a Swiss Army Knife. I've been in an earthquake, a hurricane, a flood, a volcanic eruption, a waterspout, and a tornado. I'm keeping my eye out for a plague of locusts. Actor, DJ, skydiver, bullrider, poker player, airplane mechanic, lifeguard, writer, marine engineer, and lover of gadgets. I've tried out for Survivor seven times, ( I think they're afraid of me!), caught a 13 pound lobster, and lived at the South Pole. I served for 11 years in the United States Navy and was born in Dallas Texas.

Any questions?
I am the voice of the Tournament of Roses Float Audio Tour, and I have voiced spots for Dale Jr's Hammerhead Entertainment, Pool World, Disney, Universal Music, multiple voices in audio plays of Shakespeare, and NASA.
Just North American English, or something close to it, anyway. My Texan sometimes appears at inopportune times.
I have a solid vocal range, and a nice warm narration voice, with a hint of raspiness. Friendly and inviting, but can still bust out a top notch Monster Truck / used car read.

Very 'Everyman'!
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Russian, Italian, Irish, Scottish, US Southern, New York, Hungarian, Austrailian

Edward G. Robinson, Roger Rabbit, Paul Giamatti, Groucho Marx, President Bill Clinton, Christopher Walkin, Peter Lorre, Santa Claus, Grandpa Simpson, and if I have JUST the right cold, and it's late at night, I can do a spot on Morgan Freeman.
Senior Male, Middle Age Male, Young Adult Male
Union Affiliation
Power Mac G5, Twisted Wave, Avalon Vt737sp, Mackie PROFX8 Mixer, AT4047SV Mic, Mackie Big Knob Studio Command Center, Telos Zephyr Xtream ISDN, JK Audio Phone Patch, M-Audio Monitors, Behringer MINIAMP AMP800 headphone amp, and AKG K240 headphones.

For those of you who hadn't heard, my wife, Susan Thisdell Jones passed away peacefully Thursday, March 17th, after a 9 year battle with breast cancer.  Some of you met her at Voice 2008, some at the LA voiceover mixer.  Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

Finally!!! The Booth is finished!

Posted on November 26, 2008 at 7:00pm 2 Comments

OK, gang, here's the skinny. I got the booth finished today, just in time for a big session this weekend for the Rose Parade.

DAWBOX makes excellent plans, easy to follow, and very customizable with a little imagination. Now I know my taste is not everyones, but by way of explanation; I was too young to appreciate the sixties when I was in them, so I am re-creating them in my booth. (It's all the wife will let me do, I am allowed one lava lamp in the rest of the house.) Take a look,… Continue

Part 3 of the Booth Build

Posted on November 12, 2008 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

First, I want everyone to go to my 4th demo, it'll give you an idea of why I built this beastie! Evidently, my neighbors feel that they have a near fatal leaf problem, because I hear this at least 3 times a week!

OK, I got all the pieces to the apartment, hauled them up the stairs, (It's amazing how much wood and carpet weigh!), and into the spare bedroom. I guess I can't really call it that anymore, now it's the studio!

Anyway, the sides are 7 ft. high, so I had to turn… Continue

More booth building...(Part 2)

Posted on November 7, 2008 at 2:00am 0 Comments

OK, a few days off, I got the booth carpeted, and most of it moved into place. I'm back on das boot, so I am stymied till Monday morning. I SHOULD have it at least installed next week!

I feel like a cool kid now for sure! Check my photos for the visual tale!

Best if you go to the album, they play in order that way!

Good Reads,


I had a few days...(Booth Build part 1)

Posted on October 29, 2008 at 2:30am 1 Comment

..So, in addition to studying and working with my acting, I started a booth. I did not start taking pictures till I had the bottom built, but I think the narrative thread is still there. I'll post a few more as I move it further along. I got some plans from DAWBOX, but I have modified them quite a bit. They were an excellent springboard, though, and well worth the 50 bucks.

Mine is 4x6', has a window on the right side, will be carpeted, (I have a burgundy carpet piece, but I may go… Continue
