The Beginning: Behind the Desk

Ever since I was small, I’ve been enamored with voiceover. I loved cartoons and video games, being especially drawn to outrageous, larger-than-life characters. Like everyone else I knew, I expressed that by imitating the Simpsons. I hadn’t dreamed I could make a living doing voiceover. Instead, I got a degree in writing and worked many different jobs (none involving writing, incidentally). This led to a life of boring office monotony.

Life before voiceover involved many neckties.

The Recent Past: The Acting Bug Strikes

After a few years in Denver, my wife Lauren and I moved back to Baltimore, MD. After working many jobs I had no passion for, I began doing scary things to try to see what I was capable of. One of those scary things was to audition for a play. My first acting gig was Detective Frank Geyer in the Baltimore Rock Opera Society production of Murdercastle. Since then, I’ve appeared in TV shows, film, theatre, commercials, and podcasts. I soon realized that “voice actor” was what I wanted to be when I grew up.

The Present: Voiceover is My Business

Now my work is not just a job, but an identity. To me, voiceover begins and ends with the ability to create and sustain believable, authentic characters. I’ve made this my specialty. Clients have described my voice as deep and rich with a clear, punchy top end. I sing regularly and work with coaches to expand my range and explore what my instrument is truly capable of.

Pro-tip: being super strong is important in voiceover.

The Future: Behind the Mic

I do this for the love of the craft above all else. I hope to bring to life as many characters as possible in my lifetime. I hope the one you’re looking for will be one (or, preferably, many) of them. Contact me today and let’s talk about how I can bring your message to life. Oh, and if you’re in the Baltimore area, go hang out in Hampden, you’ll likely see my wife and I out and about.
