QwertyVox Giving Voice to Great Ideas 

My voice has been described as Knowledgeable, Authentic, Authoritative but Not Overpowering; Rugged & Experienced.  Bring up the energy, and we get Car Sales Guy . . . Really ramp the energy and we get Extreme VOG, Wrestling Announcer or Game Show Host. 


I am a full-time VO artist, working from a third-party certified home studio; this means very fast turnaround, nimble retakes, and many options for file type and delivery.  Live directed sessions too.

  • Røde NT1-A mic

 Live directed sessions are possible with simple phone links, proprietary Skype-link with Pro Tools, and Source Connect.
