Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
My path to voiceover is atypical. Having built a career in an apparently unrelated field, I come to voiceover because I had so much fun recording radio spots for a friend's political campaign and everyone thought I sounded great doing it. My friend lost the election, but I found a new career. After coaching briefly with Charles Michel, I have been coaching with Wendy Dillon in private lessons and in her weekly workshops for the last two years.

What's my "old" career? I have been a practicing lawyer in New York City for twenty years, meaning I am used to meeting the exacting requirements of demanding clients (as well as colleagues and judges) day-in, day-out. I bring this ethic of devoted client service and sweating the details to my voiceover work.

In addition to my voiceover and legal careers, I am an accomplished choral singer. I am the bass section leader of the City Bar Chorus, a group of legal professionals honored by NY1 News as "New Yorkers of the Week" for our performances at hospitals, nursing homes, and senior residences, bringing cheer to our fellow New Yorkers who need it most. I have also sung bass with the Big Apple Chorus (formally known as the Manhattan Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society), including two performances at Carnegie Hall.
