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.
