Are you an Audiobook Producer or Casting Director seeking a narrator with a friendly, authoritative, soothing voice, and more? Are you an Independent Author needing full audiobook production and publishing? Great, I'd be happy to work with you on your next project.
In school, I was automatically cast for any role described as "Narrator" or "Voice of God offstage" because of the baritone richness of my voice and the confidence in my delivery. Now my approach to audiobook narration is to go beyond simply reciting words aloud. I link my voice to the author's words to bring the listener along with me. To lead them into the story like a guide, or to set the scene like a cinematographer. My style has been described as authoritative yet understated like a wise elder; informative and friendly like your favorite instructor or coach; soothing, thoughtful, and reassuring like your most authentic partner. Think of those in your life whose attention you freely give to each word they share with you.
The genres which I most enjoy include, but are not limited to, Non-Fiction Business, Self-Development, Historical, Biographies, and Memoirs, along with General Fiction, Adventure, Mystery, and Sci-Fi / Fantasy. I have decades of professional experience within Research & Development, Information Technology & Global Sales.
When not narrating, you will find me reading or listening to books, hiking or biking in nature, and spending time with family, friends, and soon-to-be friends. As a grandfather who enjoys woodworking, I have yet to outgrow skateboards, game consoles, and pinball arcades.
I record using punch and roll in my professional home studio using a Rode NT-1 microphone, ART Tube Studio V3 & Fethead preamp, Scarlett Solo interface, and Studio One DAW with iZotope RX audio repair. I can provide raw audio to producers as well as fully mastered audio for publishing.
I also provide audio services which include editing, mastering, corporate narration, video narration, on-hold messages, and podcast production.
