My voice is often described as “un-announcery” (is that a word?) and “raspy/cool/swaggery” (definitely not a word). Basically I sound like the guy sitting next to you at a bar—minus the slurring. An everyman with a cool edge who also happens to be a professional actor. How can you go wrong?

Over the years, I’ve worked on local, regional and national network spots and promos for a bunch of pretty impressive clients. They dig me because I make them look like geniuses (in a minimum number of takes). Plus, I have my own studio so I can get a session up and running faster than you can say, “Shave two seconds off.”

Some people think voiceover is just talking into a mic. Thank goodness they’re wrong, otherwise I’d really have to worry about that guy at the bar.

Growing up, my parents always encouraged me to get into voiceover. So naturally, I didn’t. (Oh the days of being young and stupid.) Luckily I came around. My dad was a pretty accomplished VO guy back in the day so I really should have listened right off the bat, don’t you think?

Anyway, when I finally got around to taking their advice, I jumped in headfirst and bought all the best studio gear. Hey, you’re paying for this to sound amazing, right? I can connect to any studio in the world via ISDN, Source Connect, Phone Patch and FTP. Just thinking about it sends my gear nerd OCD into overdrive.
