Hailing from the American midwest, home of Standard American Pronunciation, Carson, Cavett, Brando, the Fondas, and Fred Astaire, and blessed with a great set of pipes, Byron has enjoyed doing voiceover since age 13 (a very long time ago). A talented audio engineer/producer as well, he implemented (and patented) the first ISDN codec implementation for Disney in '92. He delights in quickly crafting memorable results for clients all over the world from his ISDN and SourceConnect equipped studio in Los Angeles, and travels extensively. One of Byron's specialties is communicating complex and difficult concepts and subjects (technology, medical, legal, and academic) in a genuinely engaging and compelling way.
