"The Voice Over Chameleon" - From Old School Announcer to Smooth Operator, "Guy Next Door" to Character Specialist & Accomplished Mimic. Versatile, Professional ...and takes direction well! When delivering the "hard sell" I can preform an effective, commanding, "Announcer" type voice, while also capable of a smooth, soothing, deep toned delivery for narration and the "softer sell". By utilizing my natural speaking voice, I can capture the essence of the "guy next door" approach for projects that require a vocal actor. I can do many impressions both political and celebrity, common and obscure ...but most importantly, I can mimic several well known Voice-Over Artists and Announcers, from Don Pardo-esc to Casey Kasem-ish and dozens in between. My comedic delivery is spot on.
