"The Voice Over Chameleon"
- From Old School Announcer to Smooth Operator, "Guy Next Door" to Character Specialist & Accomplished Mimic. Versatile, Professional ...and takes direction well!
When delivering the "hard sell" I can preform an effective, commanding, "Announcer" type voice, while also capable of a smooth, soothing, deep toned delivery for narration and the "softer sell". By utilizing my natural speaking voice, I can capture the essence of the "guy next door" approach for projects that require a vocal actor.
I can do many impressions both political and celebrity, common and obscure ...but most importantly, I can mimic several well known Voice-Over Artists and Announcers, from Don Pardo-esc to Casey Kasem-ish and dozens in between. My comedic delivery is spot on.

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
I enjoyed your impressions. Bill Cosby, Bob and Doug, and Walken are my favorites. Your politicians are good too! Let me know if you have any projects that can use some of my celebrity voices. I am based in Orlando so we might be able to team up on some projects.

Thanks for swinging over to my little, virtual pile of pebbles to check it out and sign my guestbook. Likewise, I headed over to VoiceOver Chameleon. I very much dig the three tone design (big fan of both black and red,) Great demos (is that the player from VO universe on your site?) I'm going to want to talk to you about the VO store, as well. If you've got a deal going with Amazon, or whatever. Great site!
Thanks for the welcome and the invite! Dude! A B.S. in Paramedic Education? You're way too qualified for voiceover! *lol* Good to see your still working for BIG radio. I have a friend who just got his papers from one of them after 14 years there. Hope our paths cross sometime - if you ever need a kick ass female VO talent for a project, give me a holler!
