Overview

I’m a non-accented US English voice talent, with over 20 years’ experience. I got my start in radio back in 1984 and have worked at many stations as on-air talent and creative director, when I discovered that voiceover work is my passion.
As a professional copywriter, I’m able to quickly interpret the message of a script, and I take your direction well. I’m quite versatile, having voiced for surgical training videos, to financial guidance, how-to “explainer” videos, to video game performance. When I’m not working, my other passions are mountain/road bicycling, traveling or working on my home.

Suitcase Experience

My voiceover experience is extensive in eLearning and training modules of all kinds; Corporate narration; Whiteboard/Explainer videos; Audiobooks; Commercial and Character voices. I'm certified by the RAB as a professional copywriter, am very proficient on editing with Adobe cs6, I have a BA in Radio/TV with a double minor in Theater and Spanish. My first career was as a radio disc jockey and Production Director for 23 years. Now, I work exclusively from a private studio in Oregon.
