"I help you say it the way you hear it."

I never like to leave the booth.

Voiceover has let me learn about history while narrating stories, teach kids about letters, words and language, solve riddles in a mysterious world and play audio dress-up whenever possible. Heck, some of my characters even scare me. My basic vocal tone is warm, articulate and mid-range. However, I've done work that not even my parents recognized.

While physically located in the San Francisco Bay Area, my voice has been heard in many places throughout the world. I've provided broadcast-ready voice tracks for radio and television commercials, narrations, web videos, eLearning and animated and video game characters.

My basic vocal tone is warm and mid-range - great for caring or conversational spokesperson; Intelligent, knowledgeable and approachable - the helpful teaching expert for training needs or educational and technical narrations.

For your video games and animated adventures, I can provide countless characters to love or hate - from over-the-top mad scientists and caffeinated nerds to more focused and dangerous folk to populate the universe of your imagined world.


I am a full-time voice actor specializing in commercial, eLearning, explainer and video game projects.

Before "turning pro" in 2009, I received VO training through workshops and classes at VoiceTrax, San Francisco.

I continue to develop and refine my voice, acting and improv skills through ongoing workshops and private coaching sessions with instructors.

I also teach recording techniques to voice actors on an ongoing basis with classes and direct sessions through JustAskJimVO.studio.
