"Friendly, professional, expert bilingual voice actor"

Do you need a confident, authoritative voice for your corporate message? How about an actor who can perform your script in flawless Neutral Latin American Spanish as well as North American English? I can add a touch of whimsy or a verbal wink if you need it. For character voices, I can be your wacky alien or confused rabbit, or perhaps you need a sinister villain who can send a chill down your listener's spine? How about an acronym-heavy technical or medical training video? My background in Information Technology makes that a breeze.

My voice has been featured in countless commercials, corporate training videos, e-learning, podcasts, museum narrations and political ads, as well as animated characters and audiobooks, in both English and Spanish. Do you need an on-camera spokesperson? Does your project need someone who can sing? I can do that too!

You'll find that I'm very easy to work with. I'm happy to take direction remotely, and I respond quickly to any requested changes. I can record what you need and get it back to you within one business day. I look forward to working with you!

 Training

For commercial voice-over, I've trained for several years with one of the finest coaches in the world, Nancy Wolfson. For animation and video game voices, I've trained with Bob Bergen (voice of Porky Pig) and Richard Horvitz (Invader Zim, Angry Beavers). I've also received extensive training in stage acting and improv at HATTheatre in Richmond, Virginia.

I've also conducted several voice-over training sessions, and led sessions at various voice-over conventions, including Faffcon and WoVoCon. For the past few years, I've also been the Showrunner for two award-winning podcasts, a job that involved writing dozens of scripts as well as songs, managing a cast of some of the best voice actors in the business, creating the sound design, multi-track audio editing, and--oh yeah, acting!

 Experience

I've been a voice talent for over a decade. My varied client list includes Sesame Workshop (animated character teaching phonics), Rosetta Stone, the American Civil War Museum, Telemundo, the New England Aquarium, the Smithsonian Channel (on-camera), Investigation Discovery Channel (on-camera), Academy Sports, the Richmond Ballet, Spotify, Walter Reed Hospital, S&P Global, Virginia Lottery, the Steward School, and many more. I've narrated audiobooks in both English and Spanish.

On stage I've portrayed everyone from Orson Welles to Elvis Presley.

 Specials

I can write copy, scripts and song lyrics. I can do post-production including multi-track audio editing and sound design. I can sing in a variety of styles. On-camera I've narrated training videos, appeared in dramatic series on AMC and Showtime, as well as feature films.
