I'm a veteran American voice actor with an incredibly rich career behind me. I've worked in theatre, commercials, infomercials, narrations, character voice overs, animation voice overs, games, films, documentaries - and that's just the beginning!
I graduated from The American Academy for Dramatic Arts in NYC in 1984, and then worked in theatre for 35 fulfilling years where I learnt how to hone my craft and undergo voice over artist training with the help of amazing mentors. My casting directors always loved my voice and it was they who pushed me to pursue a career as a voice over actor.
As someone who loved creativity and expression, it only felt natural to shift to the industry which would give me creative freedom to turn into anyone without worrying about whether my physical appearance was fit for the role.

I love making people laugh!
Even though I've worked in a variety of roles, I've found that the most enjoyable roles for me are the ones in which my audience is laughing. I love entertaining people and bringing some positivity and enjoyment into their lives.
The best voice actor is the one who can turn into anyone.
Voice over artist services are not just about walking in and reading a script on the spot. It requires gruelling hours of practice and a lot of experience voicing for all kinds of genres to really get a grip on how to modulate the tone, depth, clarity, intonations, and nuances in your voice. It's about learning how to breathe at the right time and how to bring in the perfect length of silence to make a greater impact. Voice over services are not just about imitating human sounds, but also sounds of objects, animals, and even creating a totally new accent for your character!
Everyone has a voice, but not everyone can give a voice artist performance.
It takes a lot of grit - not to mention guts - to become a voice artist. You have to be confident enough to look like a fool!. After all, imagine a bulky looking guy voicing over as a little old grumpy lady - he definitely needs the guts to not care about sounding like that!
