There are three characteristics of great voice-over service. PERFORMANCE, including use of the voice, script interpretation, imagination, acting skill and a natural feel for what works in each situation. PROFESSIONALISM and all it implies, with great customer service skills, prompt responses and short turnaround times. Finally, PERSONALITY. A person’s individuality is the “special sauce” that only they can bring to a voice-over. Those three characteristics coupled with a great attitude and genuine care for your project is what makes the creative process so enjoyable.
Every brand has it’s own
unique story to tell
Every voice-over must be strategically thought out and adjusted, because each company, product and target audience is unique. You need a partner who will work with you to tell your unique story. Need a real-person sound? A confident teacher, a compassionate doctor or knowledgeable mentor? An ironic announcer with a wry sense of humor? You need someone who knows when to sit back and let the images speak, and when to stomp on the gas and blow the doors off. In every case, I never lose sight of the story to be told. Let’s talk about bringing your brand, your product, your vision to life.
Sometimes it takes more than 60 seconds to tell your story
When it does, you need to get listeners engaged and keep them listening. Every kind of narration deserves it’s own care and handling. An explainer video, elearning module, corporate training, medical procedural or historical documentary all require a different touch. I take the time to find out who your audience is and what you are trying to communicate. I then adapt my delivery to your vision. In fact, it is so important to me that you get the performance you need, that if I don’t think I am the right choice for you, I will tell you. Let’s talk about your next narration project!
They say it’s the quiet ones you need to watch out for
In my everyday life, I am a reserved, thoughtful guy. I am also the guy who can surprise you when he gets behind the microphone. So don’t be shocked if this contemplative guy next door turns into an orc philosopher, a shy pirate, an apologetic mad scientist, a commando squirrel, or a parrot with a drinking problem. My comforting baritone hides more creativity and vocal range than you might imagine. This versatility gives you confidence knowing that I can help solve those unexpected twists and turns in your creative process.
But wait! There’s more!
You need more than just a voice. You want to know you’ll get great service too!
I always complete each job as soon as possible, usually under 24 hours. This leaves ample time for pickups if needed, gives you maximum editing time, and reduces stress because you don’t have to wait until the last minute.
Communication is key to any great relationship. I want to do it right, so you may find I ask more questions than you are used to. If you want to contact me, I am available via email or phone. I keep a busy schedule, but will always get back to you as soon as I can.

Being a successful voice actor is about more than the sound of a voice. It is script interpretation, acting, imagination, and requires a professional who makes your project more important than their ego. It also means broadcast quality sound, great communication skills, prompt follow-up and a quick turnaround. A great attitude doesn’t hurt either. I have built my reputation on these qualities.
