Profile Information

Voice Actor
I'm a producer for a radio station in Ontario, Canada, and have been in the radio industry for about 5 - 6 years! I absolutely love VO work, whether it's commercials, cartoons, video games, or a podcast! Whether it's serious or zany (Though I LOVE zany), I'm enthusiastic about my reads!
I've got a youthful, energetic, expressive voice. I love to try accents, and can even succeed on a few of them!
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Most of my accents are more comical then 'realistic', but I can do Scottish, Hindi, a classic 'New York' style read, and a a handful of character voices. I'm always willing to try any accent and voice! Pushing my vocal abilities is a great way to have fun in the recording booth!
Young Adult Male, Teenage Boy
Union Affiliation
I've got a full recording studio at my disposal.
I use 'Dropbox' for distribution in whatever format you want.

Hi Tim:

In honor of your birthday, I sat down and wrote you a
song. Here are the lyrics . . . .”This is your Birthday Song,
It isn’t very long . . . “

And many more . . . !

That's wonderful production on the viewer mail piece. Did you look down farther in my posts on my Group (Ask a casting director) and find the zip files that have a slew of characters and lines as examples of what's needed in games? That should give you a great broad picture of what's needed.
Keep me posted and best of luck!!

Hi Tim!

Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!

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!

Best to ya!

Hey Tim,
I had a listen and loved it. The writing is really strong. And your cab driver is not too far over the top. While the accent is a bit suspect, you can hear the human side of him come through – and that’s what listeners connect with, right?
For some variety, you might try setting him inside the cab driving. Have people honking at him and him cursing them out (no swearing of course). He could be commenting on stuff he’s seeing as he drives - like cabbies do when you have a conversation with them.
You also might try suggesting he has a big family and introduce other relations – like his older brother who went to college and puts on airs, his grouchy old father from the old country, his mafia uncle, etc. Because they are “relations” you could get away with playing the voices as they would sound a bit the same if they all came from the same family. It’s an old trick I used to extend characters out in commercial series when I produced for radio in the late 70’s and early 80’s (splicing blocks, razor blades and pancake tapes)
Be great,

Hey Tim, Saw you post in Canadian Voice Actors. It is a blast, eh?

I very much agree with Mitch - see if you can hook up with Debbie. She is a wonderful coach and a damn talented voice actress. She and I go way back to animation gigs 10 years ago - she is one of my current voice coaches and produced my current Commercial demo. Call her at her studio in Vancouver at 604-459-5559.

Be great,

Hey Tim welcome, it's all about studying the craft, taking classes, finding a coach and so on. It's the way you will make contacts in the business and learn to market yourself. You're in Canada I would look up Deb Munro. I live in LA and work by phone with Mala Kirban who is in NY.
Good Luck and have fun.
