"Conversational, friendly, confident, cool, good actor!"
Ed Cunningham

I'm able to create relaxed and conversational narration, but still maintain the energy necessary to hold the audience's attention. I will not abide sounding like a voice-over, or an announcer! Unless you ask me to :-) I am from the Gen X generation of voice actors in Chicago who INVENTED the non-announcer announcer. That's right, I was saying "Gatorade, is it in you?" when Michael Jordan was ballin'. My 25 years of professional voiceover experience lies in both long form narration and short quick-hitting national advertising. I'm also an award winning stage and screen actor, having acted in over 40 professional theaters around the U.S., and having played the lead role in feature films selected for the Sundance Film Festival and Slamdance Film Festival.
